IsoBuster 3.5

IsoBuster is an unusually powerful data recovery tool that can rescue files from just about any optical disc.

The program works with all CD, DVD, Blu-ray and even HD DVD formats. In a couple of clicks it can be scanning your disc for lost data. And a deep understanding of many different file structures means that, if the files are still readable, there's a very good chance that they can be recovered.

There are also many convenient and thoughtful touches here. When you first scan a disc, for instance, IsoBuster will ask if you want to create an image of it on your hard drive (scanning that will be much faster). And in a welcome bonus feature, the program allows you to open many image formats, and browse them as though they were actually discs, viewing documents or launching the applications they contain.

There is also an important restriction with this version of the program: it can't recover data from UDF discs (UDF is the file system used by packet writing applications). To unlock this you must purchase an IsoBuster Pro licence; this costs $29.95 for personal use, and you can find out more on the IsoBuster site.

IsoBuster 3.5 includes the following new features in addition to a large number of improvements:
+ 64-bit sector addressing so that we can properly show, extract and support any partition, file, folder or file system above the 2TB boundary
+ Most objects (files, folders etc), despite the 64-bit address instead of the 32-bit address, now use less memory because of intense work and serious optimizations
+ Saving and updating of managed image files, especially for huge drives, is considerably made faster, and yet kept backwards compatible
+ Ability to load a generic image file (*.iso, *.dks, *.flp) with specified properties on the command line: /IPROP:header|blocksize (e.g. /IPROP:100|2048)
+ Ability to extract CD segments as *.WAV file (Gives you the power to wrap any raw CD data in WAVE RIFF headers)
