Back up all kinds of data, not just audio
OBJECTIVE: You know you should back up your data—and you can do it easily with WaveLab 7.
BACKGROUND: WaveLab 7 can create audio CDs and surround DVDs, but can also back up any data type to CD, DVD, and even Blu-Ray recordable media.
1 From the main four-button toolbar, open any Podcast workspace.
2 From the Podcast workspace Utilities menu, choose “Data CD/DVD.”
3 In the Data CD/DVD window, select the type of media you want to use; you can also name the volume here.
4 Drag files from WaveLab 7’s file browser, the desktop, or wherever into the Data CD/DVD window.
5 Click on the Burn button. A “Write Data CD/DVD” window appears; choose the desired Device and Write Speed from their respective drop-down menus, then click on “OK.”
6 A window appears, displaying the burning progress. When the job is done, “Operation was successful” flashes in the window. Click on “OK” to dismiss the window, then click on the Data CD/DVD “Close” button to finish the process (or don’t close, and create another backup).
• Step 1: No matter which Podcast workspace you choose, you can access the burning function.
• Step 4: The vertical bar graph toward the window’s left shows how much space the files will take up on the media.
• Step 5: If you want to test whether your system can burn at the desired speed without actually burning the media, check “Test only, do not burn.”
