CD/DVD Recovery

What’s CD/DVD Recovery

The “CD/DVD Recovery” module is designed specifically to recover lost and deleted files from damaged, scratched or defective CD and DVD disks. This module can recover data recorded by common CD/DVD writing software. It supports data recovery from almost all CD and DVD disk types (CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, and DVD-RW), and from quick formatted raw disks. It also supports disk recorded with UDF packet writing software: DirectCD, InCD, packetCD. The recovery wizard allows you to easily scan and recover files. 

The “CD/DVD Recovery” module is easy to use, featuring step-by-step interfaces that will guide you through several stages of data recovery. All you have to do is to click the "Open" or "Full Scan" button. And then wait until the scan is completed. You will get your deleted or lost files back in minutes. 

The "Open" function could open the CD/DVD disk directly. And all the tracks on the disk and file system will be listed in this module. This function could help you recover files from multi-session disk, scratched or defective CD and DVD disks.

The "Full Scan" function could full scan the disk to help you recover data from damaged, formatted and uninitialized disk.

CD/DVD File System

CD and DVD discs contain a certain file system. The file system describes where the files and folders are located on the media. In most cases the different file systems point to the same files and can support different operating systems. In some cases however, file systems do differ and one file system may for instance contain a driver to be able to read another file system. The “CD/DVD Recovery” module can scan all file systems it knows and will show them all.

This allows users to select the file system they require. It is a very powerful feature of this recovery module in its quest to be able to recover “all” data!
