    I did a google search on this "Backup Buddy" thing, and it seems to be one of these packages that backs up DVDs to CDRs in the VCD format. (And if it included DVDx, it is also selling freeware that can be downloaded at no cost.)
    If you have a DVD burner (and are backing up pre-recorded DVDs onto blank DVD+/-R), this product is of no use to you, and DVD Shrink is all you need.
    If you have only a DVD-ROM and a CDRW Burner, on the other hand, this product contains the kind of software you need (but is likely being sold without the permission of the programmer), but you should seek some support in the VCD forum (or from the company, since their web page claims to offer full support).
    Here is another thread dedicated to BAckup Buddy:
