What is DVD Shrink?
DVD Shrink is a program used to backup movies from your precious DVDs, which can be integrated with Nero or other similar software (like Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools) to make it a one-stop solution for making a file off your favorite DVDs and burning them onto compatible hardware or discs. Though these aforementioned software actually had tools to do this on their own, DVD Shrink is unique in the sense that it is completely free and can compress, hence shrink, the DVD image file. This is because when the backup is made the resulting file is very large to fit on a recordable, blank DVD, so DVD Shrink overcomes this limitation by reducing the resultant file size, without any actual or measurable loss in the quality of the DVD. Not only this, but DVD Shrink allows you to re-author your DVD, essentially making a compilation built from several source DVDs or media.
DVD Shrink is compatible with Windows computers and its developers guarantee that it will always be a freeware, but support has been halted and it is only available for computers until Windows XP (meaning no Vista or Windows 7 support). There are instances where DVD Shrink can run in these systems, but the publisher warns against this.
