    The amount of free space available on your hard drive is very marginal for DVD encoding/burning etc.

    Normally, a minimum of 10% of your hard disk space is recommeded to be free to handle temporary and background transitiions.

    DVD encoding/burning can often require 10 to 12GB free hardisk space.

    Hi
    Have just tried to reinstall shrink in my documents but after it is completed and I click on the icon in documents it says open with other. Any idea what I am doing wrong. I have 2 hard drives in my computer one is 10GB and the other is 20GB which has 19GB of free space.

    Hi all. :)

    Lesley, do you have other DVD backup/burning/editing sotwares installed (Pinnacle, Roxio,...)?
    Have you tried any of the previous DVD Shrink versions?
