Windows 7: re: burning sys image to dvd

windows 7 home 32 bit, I just changed back from 64 to 32bit
re: burning sys image to dvd

I am running Win7 home 32bit on my laptop. I saved the C drive image to my D hard drive because I didn't have any double density 8.5gb dvd's. I now have some double density dvd's. 1st off I have a 250gb hard drive. About 1/4th used for the C drive. Will the image fit on one 8.5gb dvd? and how do I move the C drive image off the D hard drive to the dvd?

Windows 7 home premium x64

Look at the size of the image file, properties from context menu, I don't think it's likely as the basic installation is over 20Gb without added programs and stuff.

most people here would recommend you back up your images to an external hard drive,

when you create an image you can point it to the external hard drive.

you can pick up a 1T external relatively cheap these days

I am looking for a more permanent way to store the image. Like on a dvd. As you know any hard drive is subject to crashing and losing data.

Native Windows 7 Disc Image Mount/Burning Software?
Is there? I'd like to burn a cue/bin set of files and wonder if the basic Win7 burning software will burn them properly or if I should use a 3rd party app? If the basic Win7 burning software doesn't, is there a freeware from MS for it? Thanks!
