Default advice on CD and backup programs

I thought I could get by with the NT backup program installed on Windows, but it's apparent I need to buy a more suited tape backup software for my slowly growing business. I have a Scorpion 4 mm data DAT tape drive installed in my tower, and am looking for a program that works well with Pro Tools sessions. Any advice? Also, what's the best program for compiling your clients sesions into a CD? (Something along the lines of MasterList) I've used MasterList when I worked on a Mac, but I don't think it's PC compatible, and I've heard there's better programs out there now. Thanks for any advice.

Default Re: advice on CD and backup programs

As far as I know, the gold standard of backup programs for some time has been "BackUp Exec" by Veritas. I think it works with any tape drive, but call them (or any vendor you use) to make sure it works with yours.

I got tired of dealing with tapes and backup type files altoghether, so I am using Maxtor external firewire drives (80 gig for less than $300, I think they sell internal 80 gig for less than $200). Way faster, you just use Windows copy command, you can read a file at any time without 'restoring' it first, etc.

Beggehorn, I used Mezzo when I worked at a Mac based studio and liked it alot, but I don't think it's Windows compatable. Are you using it on your PC?

Steve, thanks for the advice. The Maxtor firewire sounds like a good option, but I'm skeptical of having 80 gig of clients sessions on one drive. That means I might have 10 or 20 different projects on one drive, and if it becomes corrupt, I lose them all. Tape backup does seem outdated, but still the most bulletproof. Am I looking at this right?

Also, does anybody have advice on the best CD compilation program for NT? MasterList CD was great for the Mac, but not an option for my Windows setup. I have a good external burner, but I need a program that will arrange my PT sessions into a complete file with time spacing and level matching (etc..) between songs. Thanks again for any help.
