Backing up digital files - good archiving program?

I have a bunch of projects that I need to back up. Here is the challenge :
I would like to be able to archive them (store, no compression) in chunks of 4.7 for a DVD. If I could take the entire folder with all of the images, sounds, movies, NLE prjec files etc and have the program archive them in 4.7 chunks so I can just back them up to DVD, that would be great. Right now I am doing the SLOW method of finding the files that fit on the DVD and then burning them, going back and doing it again.

Nero is good for backing things up to DVD, and I'm pretty sure they have a utility that does disk spanning, i.e. they can span large files across multiple DVD's so you don't need to sit and arrange them in a way that fits.

Bear in mind that I am a Mac user and am not as "with it" with the Windows world anymore, but I imagine Nero is still one of the more trusted burning solutions unless something has really changed recently.
