Despite hard disks are more secure nowadays, they still remain mechanical devices which are subject to failures. SSD (Solid State driver) are one of the best solution around, but even they can get broken or burnt if a power surge runs over their sensitive components. The fool-proof solution still remains to burn whatever you wish to CD  and DVD since it has been proven that they can last a lot of years. In fact they don’t use any mechanical part nor power to work. They don’t even have to be touched to get what they contain (in fact CD/DVD readers use a laser beam to read data). Anyway are you sure that when you burn something to your CD or DVD you will be able to read it later? As a matter of fact, sometimes the burning process is faulty and  can give you a useless or unreadable disk as a result. Let’s find out how we can recover and read damaged files from CD and DVD.

CDCheck is a simple-to-use data recovery utility which detects and recovers damaged files on CD-ROMs with an emphasis on error detection.  It makes sure that the data you burnt on your CD-ROM is safe before it is too late. Its most important features include:

  • Readability verification.
  • CRC file creation (and verification) and data recovery.
  • File/directory checking.
  • Binary file/directory compare.
  • Support for Cd audio, DVD data.
  • CD/DVD information with media ratings

Reading from the website: “CDCheck is utility for prevention, detection and recovery of damaged files with emphasis on error detection. It offers readability verification, creation and checking of MD5, CRC-32, SHA… hashes (in file formats SFV, MD5 and CRC), extremly efficient file compare (faster than in most other programs) and recovery. CDCheck can be used on all files visible by the operating system. This means all files that you can see in Windows Explorer (CDs, DVDs, disk drives, floppy disks, ZIP drives, USB keys…). Apart from this it also works with audio CDs and provides information about inserted CD/DVD (manufacturer, media type…).”
