Data recovery utilities often overlook the simple CD data recovery. The sickening feeling you get when you discover the draft for your book, your resume, or the babies photos on CD are no longer readable can be replaced with a feeling of contentment. That is if you choose the right data recovery utilities.
Most of the CD data recovery programs are under $50, the prices start at $30, free trials of some of the programs are available. All are downloadable which means extra saving because there is no trip to the store. There are data recovery utilities that will recover files from different operating systems too. Of course, in the case of physical damage to the CD, data recovery utilities will probably not be able to recover all of the data, this is because if the CD is scratched some of the data has been physically destroyed. CD data recovery can also be preformed on disks that have been quick erased, quick formatted, or the files simply erased. Full disks or disks with error messages can also be rescued with data recovery utilities. If the CD was burned incorrectly CD data recovery tools can read the data, as they can if the computer incorrectly states the CD is blank. As always, backups are the best prevention against needing data recovery utilities.
