Burnt CD's file's contents contain only 0's. Why? How do I fix it?


I made a backup of my system before I installed a new OS, now all of my backed up files are corrupted.

It said it was successfully burned.

The contents of my text files are 00\00\00\00\ and so on. What happened? How do I fix this?

I couldn't guess at what happened, but if that's all you have then there's not going to be anything you can do about it other than learn to check backups are valid manually before relying on them.
