Question CD-RW backups


Hi all,

I need to make an initial backup of a 350 MB directory (with all the subdirectories) and an incremental backup of this directory each day.

I would like to use my CD-RW drive to make those backups but I don't know if this is the best solution (I know there are other ones that are better like external HDs or ZIP units but they are very expensive) and I would like to know if there is any application (GUI if posible) to do it.

Could you help me?

Thank you.

CD backup is by far the easiest and the cheapest of all types.
u can use CD roast to write on the CD's.. though the procedure is a bit clumsy (not as easy as NERO on win) but this is the best writing software on linux.

just go to system tools ----> CD writer and it will pop up.
