The Lost Art of CD Data Recovery
Between losing data on our computer's hard drive, on tapes, and on diskettes we would think that there would be no other way to misplace or lose our important data, but we'd be wrong. CD data recovery is yet another method of finding and recovering that lost data; this time CD data recovery is the art of recovering data that has been lost on, you guessed it, a CD. Now, losing your information or pictures or music files or other important pieces of data no longer has to be the "end of the world". With CD data recovery, the lost bits of information can be completely recovered in most cases.
Whether you have lost data on a CD-R, CD-RW, or DVD, CD data recovery can help you! Data loss on a CD can occur for a variety of reasons that affect the files located on the compact disc. These include virus attacks, lost drive letters, lost partitions, configuration errors, and drive limitations that improperly read the files to the CD. This makes the recovery of data on a CD often complicated, but rest assured that there is always hope for recovering your lost data.
There are a variety of software programs that can assist you with recovering your data from a compact disc. Some of the more recommended ones are "Bad Copy Pro" which is a program that is fully automatic and simply rewrites the lost files back to the hard drive, recovering missing or lost data from documents, images, and even applications. "Bad Copy Pro" is generally inexpensive and comes with a high rate of success. It also does not overwrite the files on the CD, which often can cause problems.
"Multi Data Rescue" is another program that many of the experts use to recover their lost data from CDs. This program is usable in the Windows interface and is considered to be very user friendly. It can be used to recover files from CDs and DVDs, supports digital media recovery, and can even recover data from memory cards and USB related disk issues. There is a program that is an offshoot of "Multi Data Rescue" that is specifically designed to recover data from DVDs, but the original program also does the trick.
Between these two programs and the many others available on the market, CD data recovery is no longer about attempting the impossible but is rather about getting your lost files and documents back as soon as possible. It no longer matters how you lost the files or what happened to the CD, but rather how quickly recovery is possible. Technology can be an hindrance at times, but in the end there is always something available to put the wrong things right and in this case it even works on lost data from a compact disc.
