Kelly:

Do you do regular backup? Also you could use an external hard drive. Worst case copy it to your desktop just so you have a second copy.

Toast says it will span CD's/DVD's if the disc is not large enough to hold all of a file.

i backed up my photos folder. I put them on my drive then import them into iphoto. I just imported all my 09 photos and honestly i didn't look till just now how big it was. my old iphoto libraries weren't this big and havent been a problem to back up.
I don't know if you saw my other post but I think i messed up and lost all my iphoto info.

I found out that when you go the share then burn you select enough folders that the dvd can hold and when thats done you select the next batch and so on.
