G'Day Bob et al.
Thanks for your reply.
Problem SOLVED !!!!!!
I decided to do a bit of investigating, nothing to lose (famous last words!) so checked out all the individual files on the Kennedy.Pro and found they were all Archive files. Then checked the files I had copied across from the CDRW and found they were "READ ONLY" and "ARCHIVE" - both checked. Turned off the "READ ONLY" tag and Vallah! Eureka! it works!!!
Further investigation revealed that, because it is making a permanent backup record the CDRW automatically changes ALL files to READ ONLY and when copying them back to the HDD they, of course, come across as "READ ONLY" BUT, I presume, because they are being used as Program Files, UFT says they should be "Archive" files and marks them accordingly without removing the "READ ONLY" tag. The solution I used was to visit every file and "un-tag" the READ ONLY bit.
As I said, problem solved.
Back to your question, Bob. I simply performed a "Drag & Drop" process copied each Directory and Sub-Directory from within UFT to the CDRW. EVERYTHING then goes across. Just like copying to a FDD or a separtate HDD. I can actually use my backup on the CDRW and lookup data just as though it was my Master on HDD. Only difference is that I cannot amend anything on the CDRW - which is logical really as it is a Backup not a master.
Anyway, having worked through the problem on my first try I am now satisfied that I know how to get around the "CAN'T Write" problem.
Hopefully this lesson will be learned by anyone else experiencing similar problems.
Seasons Greetings to All.
