dvdisaster provides a margin of safety against data loss on CD and DVD media
caused by aging or scratches.
* dvdisaster creates error correction data to compensate read errors which
are not correctable in the CD/DVD drive.
* dvdisaster tries to read as much data as possible from defective media.
Afterwards unreadable sectors are recovered using the previously created
error correction data. The maximum error correction capacity is
* dvdisaster operates at the image level and does not depend on the file
If you create the error correction data in time and keep it at a safe place,
you have a good chance of recovering the medium contents from typical read
errors and to transfer your complete data onto a new medium.
