Auto Backup to CD-RW

Auto Backup to CD-RW

If you have users who have problems with crashes or issues with backing up, and you need an easier backup solution, consider this. You can create and give them a formatted CD-RW that backs up on insertion.

On the CD-RW place an autorun.inf file that is similiar to the following -- of course change the file to match you batch file and icon name.

[autorun]
open=backup.bat
icon=cdimage.ico

This works flawlessly if your users have DirectCD installed on their machines. The only thing they have to do is insert the CD.
