NAME

multicd - program to backup your data to CD-R/CD-RW  

SYNOPSIS

multicd [options]  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the multicd command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

multicd is a program that provides an easy way to backup a large number of files to multiple CDs. Give multicd the files/directories you want backed up and it will create as many CDs as it needs to, prompting the user to put in a new disc whenever needed. It can be configured to run in a multi-threading mode, where it will burn one image to a disc while it is copying files to another image. This feature can be disabled for slower machines.

As minimum requirement to run multicd you have to modify /etc/multicdrc or copy it to ~/.multicdrc, and customise the settings to your needs.  

OPTIONS

For more assistance see the comments in /etc/multicdrc.
