Subject: Log file incorrectly indicates file burned to disc

I noticed in a recent backup job using ZB2CD (ver 3.20) that the log file indicated that a file was burned to disc when it actually was not. Below is an excerpt from the the log file in question:

Note that THREE files are said to have been written to disc. However, the actual disc itself lists only TWO files:

D:\>dir
Volume in drive D is 0609282156
Volume Serial Number is 1703-F036

Directory of D:\

09/28/2006 08:09 PM 2,847,932,416 Archive (09.28.2006)_001.z01
09/28/2006 09:56 PM 1,445,882,855 Archive (09.28.2006)_001.zip
2 File(s) 4,293,815,271 bytes
0 Dir(s) 0 bytes free

All three files, however, ARE in the temp folder:

F:\Temp for Zip Backup to CD>dir
Volume in drive F is p2p
Volume Serial Number is 2729-42D1

Directory of F:\Temp for Zip Backup to CD

09/29/2006 12:37 AM <DIR> .

2 Dir(s) 15,041,052,672 bytes free

Incidentally the backup was made to double layer 8.5GB DVD+R discs.
