I'm looking for a disc spanning program that can fit content to multiple disks such as DVDs, but can split folders and work with sub-folders. For example:


Folder 1, with Sub-Folder 1A and 1B

Folder 2, with Sub-Folder 2A and 2B


All folders and sub-folders have files.


The program can fit files from, say, Folder 2, Sub-Folder 1A and 2B in Disk 1 while retaining the directory structure, then from Folder 2, Folder 1, and Sub-Folder 2A in Disk 2, and so on.


My guess is that the program has to come up with a list of all files in all folders, group them to best fit each disk, and then copy them while retaining their folder location.


Finally, I hope there is also an option to move or copy the folders to another location in the hard disk.

- DiscFit https://sourceforge.net/projects/discfit/

- SizeMe http://lars.werner.no/?page_id=2

- Burn To The Brim http://bttb.sourceforge.net/ (this is a very good tool but old don't know if it works ok on Windows 7)

I was going to suggest Macrium Reflect Pro, however, I've never attempted disk-spanning in any way, I'm not sure if MRP will do what you would like.
