Unfortunately I am on win-xp and use cygwin. I looked and didnt see any
reference to dvdbackup being able to be compiled to win32?
As far as I know all 3 of these tools are linux only
I do have access to a 3 or 4 linux machines but they tend to be the
underpowered, small disks servers of the house. The tv card and
dvdburner are on the winxp machine. I am going to look at dvd shrink as
a possible win32 solution.
