IsoBuster is a data recovery program that can save all kinds of data: documents, music, videos from corrupted or faulty optical media such as CD, DVD, BD and HD DVD. This software communicates directly with the drive bypassing Windows. Thus, IsoBuster gets access to the data that cannot be accessed by the Windows operating system itself.
IsoBuster also supports the creation of a number of images: *.DAO, *.TAO, *.ISO, *.BIN, *.IMG, *.CIF, *.FCD, *.NRG, *.GCD, *.P01, *.C2D, .CUE, *.CD, *.GI and much more. The program uses several retry mechanisms to retrieve data, even if Windows is unable to do so. This is a very useful and simple program. Additional functions include extracting Mpg files (*.dat), searching for lost folders and files, supporting CDText and much more. Most of the features are available free of charge, but some features such as UDF, HFS, IFO and FAT support are only available in the registered version.
- huge file system coverage and many ways to search (find the right one for you);
- Full support for Mac Properties, Resource Fork and MacBinary extraction for ISO9660 and Joliet;
- Full support for Mac properties, Resource Fork and MacBinary extraction for UDF;
- Rock Ridge (e.g. Commodore, Server, etc.);
- search for lost data on CD, DVD, BD and HD DVD discs using the "drag and drop" function (Direct CD, InCD, DLA, Instant-Write, Drag to disc, etc.);
- Search for files based on signatures. Possibility to change the list of found files on the basis of the signature, add, edit, delete the properties of files to extract the file from the location specified on the disk;
- Automatically search for extensions based on the contents of the file to assign an extension to an unknown file type;
- Support for Mount Rainier discs (CDs or DVDs) on Mount Rainier drives, but not on MRW drives;
- Check the readability of all files and folders without having to copy them to the LCD;
- the ability to create special image files (*.IBP / *.IBQ), which can be supplemented in the future if necessary. This allows you to create CD/DVD/BD/HD DVD images in different drives, and then each drive completes the image file with parts that it can read. Thus, if many drives can read different sections of a CD or DVD, you can use all of them to complete an image that contains *all* (or most) of the data.
