Even though hard disks of today have huge capacities, they are not reliable for storing important information. A hard disk crash can occur at any time, and it can be quite devastating if there is no backup present. Previously, we have covered some very good applications that allow you to monitor hard disk performance to avoid crashes, such as DiskCheckup, a tool that lets you easily keep a close eye on Drive Info and Smart Info. However, even after all that, a hard disk is still not a safe option to keep your important data safe. One option is for you to buy some cloud storage and upload the data to the cloud, but since saving data online makes it easier for hackers to steal it, saving sensitive information on cloud storage is really risky. A safe option is to save the data on a CD or DVD drive. You can write multiple disks and easily save them in any location you want without the risk of losing the data. LightMan Writer is simple to use application for Windows that allows you to easily write data onto CD and DVD disks. It provides you with multiple options to create different types of CDs and DVDs, such as Data Disc, Audio Disc, Video Disc, Image Disc etc.
During installation, make sure that you uncheck the installation od WebScout DB Toolbar to avoid getting unwanted software in your computer.
The main interface has Data Disc, Audio Disc, Video Disk, Write Image, Copy Disc and Read Disc as the available modes for writing a particular type of data onto to the CD or DVD. Just click the required mode and you will be taken to the options window to select the data.
For instance, if you select the Data Disc option, you are allowed to select the files, as well as complete folders for writing onto the disk. The upper part of the interface has Explorer View, while the lower part contains the Disc Layout. Files and folders can be added to the disk by dragging and dropping them from the Explorer View to the Disc Layout.
The writing options allow you to choose the writing speed, writing method, and configure the process according to your need by selecting advanced settings, such as Allow Overburning, Swap Audio Byte order, Ignore medium size etc.
