    Backing up programs to a cd

    Good evening to all.
    Been wondering about backing up all of the small programs that I have downloaded CCleaner for example.
    Would it be possible to save all those that are in my download folder to a cd/dvd disc, Is that a possibility Please.
    Many Thanks. David.

    Yes it is, don't forget though that some get frequently updated though so things like Ccleaner will be out of date in a month or so.
    Personally I back them up to a drive on a PC just used for backups.

    Thank You
    What would be the best way? Drag and Drop from download folder to the cd/dvd dive with disc in of course?

    What ever is easiest, I'd just drag the whole folder or right click send to DVD RW drive.
