Multi DVD Erase

Post by wacole »

I have a 2 dvd backup which I run weekly and rotate over a month. (2 disks a week for 4 weeks and then start from the beginning again). The dvds are DVD+RWs.

I have set the "Erase disk" checkbox on for this backup's properties. For the first disk B4All correctly asks whether I want to erase the disk, but for the 2nd disk it doesn't ask whether to erase and only wants a clean unwritten disk which if not available, offers the cancel option.

How can I get B4All to ask the Erase question for the 2nd (and I assume all subsequent) disks?

Thanks very much.
