Does CloneBD backup Blu-rays with protection sometimes...? All the time...? I'm using a trial version 18.104.22.168 which is the most current at this time. I'm using the free trial to backup some of my newer Blu-rays to my QNAP NAS (Network Area Storage). I had a problem with playing some recently and my first assumption was that the backup may be corrupt. I tried to run the backup (folder) through CloneBD to see if it would throw up any errors before I consider running another backup with the disc. The message I'm getting when using CloneBD > Open Folder > "Grinch, The (2018)" is the following: "Cannot use the selected folder. The BDMV structure in the selected folder is still protected. CloneBD cannot be used to copy protected Blu-ray discs." I'm using my licensed AnyDVD HD with a trial version of CloneBD for the original Disc to Folder backup. I use to just use AnyDVD HD to rip to Hard Disk, but I wanted to see if CloneBD could help save some time and storage space by minimizing the backed up content. When just using AnyDVD HD, I leave "Keep Protection" unchecked. I don't see any options like this in CloneBD. Not all of these backups show the backup as being Copy Protected. The following Titles show Copy Protection on the Backup folder according to CloneBD: A Dog's Way Home (2019) Aquaman (2018) Grinch, The (2018) Allegiant (2016) Saving Private Ryan (1998) I should note that when using Handbrake to convert them to MKV, they are not seen as protected... Is there a glitch with CloneBD? This doesn't seem too bad considering I've backed up just over 40 Blu-rays in just 2 weeks, and only the above listed are showing Copy Protection on the backup folder. However, it doesn't seem practical to use AnyDVD HD to perform a COMPLETE backup to guarantee no Copy Protection on the backup folder, just to use CloneBD to slim it down afterwards. And, what's to stop CloneBD from glitching and thinking the backup is too protected...? Tip for Blu-ray playback without conversion... I recently discovered that the "Infuse 6" app can direct play my full Blu-ray backups right from the NAS which is nice considering I won't need to convert them to MKV in order to play them in my Plex.
