Reccommend a DVD Ram file recovery program

  jack 14:37 17 Jul 2009

I have had come to me a Panasonic DVD RAM disc
Where one side was inadvertently formatted.
Is there a suitable recovery program for such a disk?

click here this is a direct download of a free program which will recover images, jpg's etc from just about any media.

I am only guessing that it might work for you. Make a new folder on your Desktop to direct the program to save the recovered material into that folder, it is then easy to find.

Given that one a whirl
Now downloading a few more to try

A good one is worth paying for but what is a really good one?

The free one I have shown you is quite simply the very best at recovering images - the problem here might be, that it is a RAM disc.

It also pulled out items such as a folder for Microsoft Money Data, another for Microsoft Cabinet Archive,Text Doc, and Unicode, none of these read for me of course.
I think I shall pass it back to the owner at this stage with a CD of the recovered content, and ask if he was expecting more.
Whats the betting he won't remember?

Thanx once more

OK, thanks for your feedback - the owner probably wasn't even expecting that much anyway, so should be quite pleased.
