Firestreamer-DVD Allows the Windows Backup to Span Multiple DVD Writers

Auckland, New Zealand (PRWEB) March 9, 2005

Cristalink Limited announced the release of Firestreamer-DVD 1.4, software that enables the native Windows Backup Utility (NTBackup) to directly access DVD media, with the ability to span an unlimited number of DVD writers. Firestreamer-DVD emulates a virtual tape drive and seamlessly integrates with Microsoft's NTBackup and Removable Storage, making all the features of NTBackup available for DVD writers, including data compression, media spanning, volume shadow copy, and Windows Automated System Recovery (also known as bare metal restore). The new version of Firestreamer-DVD eliminates the need for frequent manual disk changes, thus making DVD media more suitable for large backups.

"Firestreamer-DVD offers significant advantages over the packet writing software, which allows to access DVD writers by a drive letter", says Nick Repin, Cristalink CEO. "Among those are the ability to span multiple DVD disks and drives, data compression, and much faster backups with less CPU usage. With NTBackup, our software can back up and restore all types of data, from personal files to live Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange Server databases. This makes Firestreamer-DVD a great backup solution for home users and small businesses."

The software operates on Microsoft Windows 2000, XP and 2003 Server, and is fully compatible with Microsoft Small Business Server 2000 and 2003. Firestreamer-DVD costs $ 30 USD for a single-computer license, and may be ordered securely online. A fully functional version of the software can be downloaded for a free 30-day trial from Firestreamer's website at
