Your Advice

I've had a Hard drive that I use for backups die on me (not even spinning up).

My option are, pay someone £250 to salvage tha data. If it was spinning I have a friend who works in this field who can retreive pretty much anything. No go!

Now....I've actually been pretty lucky in that I still have all but two of the projects on my main system.

And, all that I actually need for the missing two are backups of the finished DVD's. I can get a copy of each DVD I just browse the DVD and copy the Video and Audio folders across to a new drive or, make an image or....what?

Just want to be in a position to burn them extra copies in future should they ask.

PS-Lesson learned. Next purchase will be a NAS enclsure which will be setup with two 500Gb's drive set to mirror in RAID.

If you're using DVD Architect, create a folder to hold copies of the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders from the DVD. Then tell DVDA it's a Previously prepared folder. If you have something like Nero, you could just copy the DVD directly.
