Subject: Why more disks than needed?

Started yesterday evaluating Zip Backup to CD by maknig a full backup of my C drive. I excluded temporary internet files and included the register and system status.
The result is Disc 1 650MB (16011 files and 1356MB before compression), Disc 2 28MB (66 files and 35MB before compression), Disc 3 650MB (121198 files and 1290MB before compression), Disc 4 28MB (448 files and 53MB before compression), Disc 5 152 MB (2214 files and 302MB before compression).
I cannot find a reason why disc 2 and 4 are not fully used. I have seen no errormessages during the process and there are no error messages in the log files. Any idea how to avoid this 'spilling'?

Which version are you using? If it is not version 3.18.7 then please download and install it, which will update your existing version.

If you are using version 3.18.7 then could you tell something about the settings and the log file, as this should not happen.
