I have several hundred gigabytes of data to backup and would like to back them up to 25 GB Blu-ray discs.
So far I've attempted to use Toast Titanium to accomplish this, but after burning about 5 discs, I end up hitting a wall where the drive just seems to time out. Obviously this is costly problem as I'm losing those 4-6 discs each time and I've already burned up about $30 worth of discs trying this.
It seems to me that there should be a better option, perhaps even somehow manually doing this. The problem is space optimization; you end up with a lot of blank space on discs if you manually handle things like this.
I've thought that perhaps there may be some software out there that would analyze the storage requirements on a set of folders and then build a series of folders named something like "Disc 1", "Disc 2", etc. and then populate these with symlinks that would then facilitate being able to perhaps burn these to a disc one by one manually and thus minimize disc loss since programs like Toast simply throw your progress away in the event of a failure.
While I'm on macOS, I could share these volumes to Windows or Linux as needed if there's no workable solution on macOS for such a scenario.
Any ideas of solutions that facilitate this kind of disc by disc burn flexibility?
