While burning DVD backups of my files/photos, one DVD-R failed verification via Toast, but mounted and showed the files. <br><br>Is it necessary to have verification and what happens if it fails? I'm guessing I shouldn't rely on this DVD?<br><br>
From the Toast help file:<br><br>You can compare the contents of two folders or two files to see if they match. You might do this to double-check that original files are identical to a copy you made of them.<br>�<br>Note:<br>Compare differs from the verification that Toast performs after recording a disc. First, verification always compares the selected source data to the finished disc; with the Compare command, you compare any two data sets. Second, the Compare command checks each individual file when comparing the data; verification compares only blocks. The Compare command usually tells you exactly which file contains an error.<br><br>May be that will help.<br><br>
