I confess I don't think of any volatile magnetic media as "backup,"
certainly not the same way that optical media are used, since they are
subject to both magnetic fields and mechanical failures, etc. Not that
optical media are perfect, but they are a lot easier to store, and with
Blue-Ray have adequate capacity to be practical.

HELIOS "mkisofs" the ultimate UDF disk image backup utility
The free public domain disk image utility "mkisofs" received major
enhancements by HELIOS Software engineers, to enable flexible disk image
creation for archiving and backup tasks going way beyond DVD image creation.
HELIOS added support to archive hundreds of thousands of files/folders into
disk images without any size limitations.
Helmut Tschemernjak, president and founder of HELIOS Software notes:
"Today's growing disk capacities and inexpensive external disk systems allow
storing read-only archives quickly on disk instead of burning media or using
proprietary tape formats. We turned "mkisofs" into a general purpose
solution which allows archiving Mac, Windows, and UNIX specific files with
their attributes into UDF disk images which can easily be mounted by Mac and
