Sine BM can only back up to one DVD/CD, my disk gets full before backing up all my photos. What is the best way to back up my Photos? I am willing to back up onto different DVDs - i.e. one for each quarter of the year and then keep them for archival purposes. I want to back up all new (changed) files once a week. I would like to have it as a scheduled task as well. Any ideas?

Thanks
BTW BM is a great program.

It is better to make archives manually, without Backup Magic. Just archive your old material as you wish and then exclude it from Backup Magic, so it won't try to copy it again.

What's the best way to exclude? could i do it by date modified or date created? if so, could you give me an example mask?

Thanks

Exclude by folder, I assume you don't have all your files in one folder, but grouped by folders. Group your images by year plus by month for example, then it is easy to exclude these years you have already archived.
