    I’m desperate! I used NT backup from the XP CD to back-up the first 9 months of my daughter’s life in photos. All seemed to go well, until I decided to access the CD. Neither browsing the CD, nor looking via NT backup shows any files whatsoever on the disc. Looking at it physically, you can see something has been burned to it, but my PC cannot find anything. Do you, or anyone you know, have a workaround or fix for this issue?
