I tried this message as an add-on to someone else's thread but didn't get a reply so I'm trying it as a new thread.
I have transferred my e-mails for last year into similarly named folders on the hard drive (using simple drag and drop)with the intention of copying them onto CD using Nero. I got the usual message about some filenames and paths being too long but opted to continue as I do with other back-up data. However, after the "Start of burnproof process" message all I get is a red cross with the message "Joliet Names of these files (listed here in ISO-L3) are equal" followed by the names of a couple of files (which are expressed as numbers and which cannot be found to delete). Then another red cross with the message "Preparation of ISO9660 structures failed".
It is evident that perhaps the filenames, taken from the subject headings of the e-mails, or some of the e-mail content is corrupting the process. I tried one folder containing just simple e-mails (some even with photo attachments) and this worked fine.
What is annoying is that there seems to be no opportunity to find and delete the offending e-mails in order to archive the majority.
Any advice, Gandalf, or anyone else?
