I found out about par2 a few days ago and I think it's absolutely
great. And I think I've grasped the basic concept. But does anyone
know how to use par2 to accomplish the following:
Suppose I have 5000MB of data. That's a bit over 7 CDs (or 1 DVD). Can
I backup this data to, like, 10 CDs or alternatively 3 DVDs, *and* be
able to recover the original data using any 8 of the CDs (or any 2 of
the DVDs). So if I lose up to 2 random CDs of the CD set, or 1 random
DVD of the DVD set, I can still fully recover the whole data?
