[Melvin Chong] "I just hope somebody will write a backup software that can write to 50 Gb Blu-ray using LTFS one day."

Pardon! Surely you mean like the packet writing software we used to use on CD's and DVD's last century? Where you just insert the disk and format it in a special way and then you read/write to it as if it was a USB Stick? Why can't you use the packet writing software that has been updated for Blu-rays? Here's one example where it mentions this if you scroll down to the bottom of the page.

On page 25 of this document Nero's InCd program formats BD-R's using UDF 2.6 and BD-RE's using UDF 2.5 so this is another program that supports packet writing.

I'm reasonably certain there are a few other manufacturers of packet writing software available and if not you have at least these two currently available. Kindly note that deleted space is not recoverable on regular write once Blu-rays but should be on re-writable Blu-ray disks BD-RE's. If you have this available you don't really need LTFS for disks, however, recipients of these disks will probably need their own copy of the packet writing software unless the companies release free disk readers for other people to read them and Nero usually gives away a free disk reader by way of download,
