DVD, short for Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc,
is a type of optical disk technology similar to the CD-ROM. Now most backup programs can backup to DVD,
Handy Backup also supports DVD.
A DVD holds a minimum of 4.7GB of data,
enough for a full-length movie. Double layer discs hold about 8.5Gb, and double-sided discs hold twice
as much as the single-sided ones. DVD discs are commonly used as a medium for digital representation of
movies and other multimedia presentations that combine sound with graphics, but are also one of the best backup solutions.
