Default cd backup/file management idea/question

ok...
I hope i can articulate this well....

the idea:
for cd archiving, make as many folders as necessary containing 700mb chunks of your session's audio files. You can name em disk 1,2,3 etc. This makes it easier on the brain if you need to backup the same project over time; without mish-mashing the order on several cds thing...

the question:
is there an easy way for you to tell your session to recognize these new folders? When you open up your session you need to locate 1 file per folder until session knows where everything is. But even if you save, it won't remember where you put everything.

or....any better ideas??

CD Folder Partitioner
Easily burn a large folder into multiple CD-R

Description
This very simple utility is useful when you have a folder too big to be copied into a CD-R, ZIP or other cartridge. CD Folder Partitioner has a single feature: reorganize a folder content into multiple sub-folders, each one having a limited size.
Main features

* Splits a folder into multiple folders, using a specified maximum size.
* Can optionally split files to optimize the filling of the folders (or for large files).
* Reconstitutes the original folder and files.

Misc
The folder and subfolder structure is preserved when spliting and recontitution.
