Fields & buttons

Click this option to select a removable medium, such as a CD, DVD, or USB Flash drive, for your archive location.

The selected drive is displayed in this field. Click the Modify button to change the drive selection.

Note: FileCabinet CS does not include a CD-recording application; therefore, if you wish to store archives on CD, you may want to specify a fixed media location for temporary storage of the archive before transferring the data to CD.

Enter a size limit, in megabytes, for your archive. The size limit you enter should be appropriate for the type of media to which you save the archive.

For example, a typical data CD has a capacity of 650 MB, so you should enter a size limit of 650 MB or less for this medium. DVDs have typical capacities of 4.7 GB for single sided and 8.5 GB for double sided. Enter a size limit appropriate for the capacity of the media you use.
