What is DVD Shrink?

DVDShrink is a free software to backup DVD disks. You can use this software in conjunction with DVD burning software of your choice, to make a backup copy of any DVD video disk.

As the name implies this freeware program allows the data contained on a full-size DVD (8.5GB) to be compressed to fit on a smaller capacity DVD+R (4.7GB). Note: v.3.2 is the last version of this program. Anything later is a fake.
