I am burning some DVDs and BDs with important data and, in addition to replication, I am adding parity data using PAR2 tools.
However, as additional safety, I would like to place the parity files on the outer end of the burned optical media, corresponding to the most delicate part of the discs. This way the probability of having damages to the rest of the files is lower. Another option would be the opposite: placing parity files at the inner end, since they can repair any file and are therefore highly valuable. In any case, I need to be able to choose their layout on disk.
Is there a way to do that? Either a specific software or a trick to generate images with existing software.
I tried years ago Nero Burning ROM, but it is a Windows-only tool. I tried standard mkisofs or similar tools but they don't provide this feature.
