Creating a Data Disc
A data disc is a disc that contains computer files. Computer files can include a wide variety of data including word-processed documents, spreadsheets, multimedia files including music, video clips, images, and more. Discs are extremely convenient for storing data as they can hold large quantities. CDs can hold up to 700MB of data, while DVDs, BDs and HD DVDs can hold gigabytes of data. Since recordable/rewritable discs are relatively inexpensive, they are quick and convenient way of backing up computer systems. As an added bonus, their compactness allows for easy storage and transportation.
