Z-DataBurn – Backup your data to CD, DVD or Blu-Ray

With Z-DataBurn you can burn whole directory structures or backup archives, for transport, backup or archiving, to disc mediums.

The program has an easy-to-use user interface and can also be controlled with command-line parameters. This allows scheduled backups using the Windows-integrated Windows Task Scheduler or our program Z-Cron.

Z-DataBurn was originally developed as an add-on module for Z-DBackup, but can also be used as a stand-alone program for data burning and backups to CD, DVD or Blu-Ray.

Backup to DVD

DVD burners are optimal for backups or copies of important data. The price per medium is very small, at around 4 cents per DVD, and the price for burners is doubly worth it because the hardware cannot only be used for backups, but also for other purposes. There is, however, one drawback: The medium size is rather limited, e.g. tape mediums offer a lot more storage. Therefore, a different backup strategy is necessary when using DVDs as the main backup medium.

By combining Z-DBackup and Z-DataBurn, many backup strategies can be realised. That makes them an ideal tool for automatic backups, for professional as well as for personal use.
