CD Session Burner can burn multiple sessions to the same disk until all the space is used up. This makes it terrific for making incremental backups. When you use a multi-session CD each session is mounted as a separate volume.

This is a great update!

I've been a user since day one & it has never given me a problem.

Does exactly what it says it will do with ease.

Worked perfectly everytime. Toast seems to hang up when finishing disks...I've got an older QPS burner. So this app is a welcome addition to the Mac Burner and iTunes

Don't see this as worth the $$, especially as there are other programs that do this as well for free.
i.e. Jaguar CD Essentials

ALSO NO WAY OF DELETING FILES IF THE TOTAL SIZE EXCEEDS THAT OF THE CD-R.

Would really like this app to work but i have tried it 2x and each time it reports an error (doesn't say what) and the barber pole seems to hang. I emailed the author and have received no reply since 2 weeks ago. I've got to back up so I'm looking for other options.

I had the same totally puzzling problem at first, then the answer finally hit me. I'd temporarily forgotten that when data is burned to a CD, aliases are not copied - the *originals* are retrieved instead.

One of the folders I was attempting to back up happened to contain a subfolder that held aliases to all 7 of my drives/volumes (which I access via FruitMenu), so I was unwittingly, in effect, telling CDSB to copy more than 15 GB onto one CD! *ROTFL* No wonder it got confuzzled. (-:

Apparently, when a folder containing aliases is dragged into CDSB's window, it (correctly!) reads the folder's actual size; in this case, it was 7 alias files x 44 KB each = only 308 KB; however, as the aliases were resolved and the actual data was retrieved during the burn itself, the REAL size for that one folder totaled 15+ GB. So (of course!) CDSB would suddenly run out of space lonnnnng before it expected to, get hung up, and the burn failed.

Now, before burning a backup, I move any folders containing aliases to large items onto my desktop temporarily, then do the burn, then move the folders back to their usual spots; and CDSB works flawlessly. (-:

Does exactly what it claims, doesn't crash, and costs not much more than pocket change. Provides an essential enhancement to Apple's Disc Burner software.
