Question Backup Alternatives


I have been doing some reading into doing backups. Everything I have read shows how to backup to a tape drive. I was wondering if it is possible to do a backup to a cd-rw? If so, how would one go about doing it?

Thanx!

Thanks for the help! I downloaded and installed. Tomorrow I will get some CD-RWs and see how well it works.
