I have Backup Maker Standard v7.202, on Windows 10.

 

The drive is a 209 GB SSD with 32 GB free space.

I have a 25 GB blu-ray disc in my drive.

 

I am trying to make a Full Backup to Blu-Ray, with the option "Make local backup and copy" unticked, but it is still using the Temp folder, and then running out of space. It gives an error "Not enough space available! Please check target and temp folder."

 

Do you know how I can get around that?

 

Thanks,

Alastair

Hello,

 

if you are writing to a DVD/BluRay, there is no way to avoid writing the backup to temp folder. It is not possible to write directly to the disc.

Thanks for clarifying that.

 

Can I get round that like this?  (assuming each folder is smaller than the free space available):

 

    choose just one folder, and do a full backup 

    add a second folder, and do an incremental backup

    add a third folder, and do an incremental backup

    etc.

No, because a full backup will be executed automatically as soon as you change the backup task (as a base).

 

I would recommend to split it into several backup tasks and execute them in a row.

Thanks. I tried that, and got a different message this time - 

 

Cannot write to disc! Please insert an empty/writeable disc and try again!

 

I checked that I can create a simple text file to the Blu-Ray.

Besides, the size of the compressed backup is some 21 GB, while the free space on my hard drive (and on the Blu-Ray) is more than 21 GB.

 

Windows Event Viewer has no related messages.

Do you know what I can do?

 

Thanks,

Alastair

I inserted a totally blank Blu-ray (which I had not even formatted), and Backup Maker wrote to it without problem.

 

For some reason, I had selected the option to split the backup into 4 GB chunks, so after writing 4 GB I get a message saying that the disc is full, and to please insert another disc. However, I just click on "Retry" (without ejecting the disk), and Backup Maker writes the next 4 GB to the same blu-ray.

 

I am happy that this is now working as I wanted.

 

Alastair
