I have encountered problems with skipping/pausing of my backups. I have always used DVD Shrink v.2.3 and RecordNow DX. Now I started to use DVD Decryptor first, because I heard that storing the files on the HD is "safer" or better than by just putting them on the VIDEO_TS folder. Is this true? Does the video quality come out better? Or is it the same? Right now I'm actually watching a backup by using this method (DVD Decryptor, Shrink, RecordNow) and so far so good. Is this because storing the files on HD is better? Or is it that I haven't gotten to the skipping/pausing part of the backup yet? Also, this may sound dumb (probably is to many of you) but, when you store the DVD files on the HD when using Decryptor (or any software that lets you store in the HD), the final size of the stored files is the same size as the movie, correct?? For instance if I try to store a movie that's 5.7 GB, only 5.7 GB will be used up on the HD.
