Flash drives, SD cards, CDs, DVDs, hard drives, and Blu Ray discs are great for offline storage. That is, of course, until they're damaged! Then the panics sets in, with fruitless trips to the geek squad, frantic internet searches, and the lingering feeling that you'll never see those photos, movies, documents, emails, or crucial powerpoint presentations again.

Never fear, IsoBuster is here to save the day!

IsoBuster is a data recovery tool specifically designed for retrieving data from just about any damaged storage device or disc. This powerful, flexible recovery tool supports countless optical, image, and storage formats, including CD, DVD, MMC Media, Micro SD, ISO, USB flash, mobile phone memory cards, Blu Ray, SDH, IMG, and HD DVD, and much, much, MUCH more!

Check it out folks! Data recovery from physical media is only part of what IsoBuster can do. It's also a one-stop source for opening and extracting ISO, IMG, and other disc image formats!

Using IsoBuster is so easy. Just insert a disc or drive, select it, and let IsoBuster mount the media. In seconds, you'll be looking at all of the tracks and sessions located on the disc, along with Explorer-like file access.

With IsoBuster's improved error handling, you'll be assured of recovering the data that you're after. Just copy the ones that you want to save to a secure location, and BAM, you're a hero!

Jon Spain Please don't assume this will work, I just reinstalled to see if it would (bought previously) but it couldn't see anything with all options ticked. Both ReclaiMe (more expensive) and Disk Drill (cheaper than ReClaiMe) work well.

Peter aka IsoBuster @Jon, then please provide constructive information ( ) so that I can look into it.
Your comment is too vague for anybody to benefit from.

Caveman Does the offer include upgrade to version 5? Thanks

Peter aka IsoBuster @Caveman, no it doesn't I'm afraid. 5.x is not on the radar yet.

Jon Spain Peter is right that I should provide more information. As I can't attach anything here, I've taken this online and emailed Peter. When my laptop failed (again) earlier this year, IsoBuster failed to see anything but other tools did, hence my disappointment because the drive actually wasn't too fried to be seen.

Peter aka IsoBuster @Jon,

Based on your email, the attached screen shots and since you feel the need to do this publicly I need to put a few things straight (publicly as well) :

> but it couldn't see anything

The drives were listed in IsoBuster and NTFS file systems were found and shown in all cases !
It's just that the files you were after were not shown immediately. That is not something that can be assumed when a valid file system is found.

If you recently deleted file(s), run a "Find deleted files and folders" starting from the NTFS file system icon (fast). If you want to do a deeper scan, run "Find missing files and folders" (reads all sectors of the partition).

> I needed to scan the drive before I could see anything!

Not true !? Plenty was shown. If no file systems can be found straight away then IsoBuster suggests to run a scan via a dialog (and text in the ListView) but if a valid file system is found (like in your case) then you need to initiate extra scans to do some drilling / carving yourself to (hopefully) find the data that somehow disappeared and that you're after.

> Perhaps the UI could have that more clearly labelled with a button?

Everything is right-mouse-click triggered. It has been this way since its conception back in the nineties. This is not going to change anymore I'm afraid.

As an engineering tool with *many* functions it's not easy to assume what the 'user' wants and provide a 'One Button' solution. Software that has one function only (and is more expensive it seems) can provide you with a 'One button' approach.

Please follow up via email, it is so much easier. As you know I'm very approachable and I always try to help.

Jon Spain @Peter OK, I'm in the wrong here and I admit it, so sorry. Everyone else, please note that this consumer was expecting something else because he hadn't read the instructions properly, that's really the point. Findings feedback later

Flavius CRISTE IsoBuster never let me down and I did have some critical situations over the years!
I'm sorry I can't use it more often since I'm on macOS now ...

Cheers Peter and keep up the good work you've dove!

Jon Spain It's now just after 7 PM (BST) and the program is up to 38% so I guess it'll finish overnight, which is fine, I'll report back tomorrow, hopefully it's still available then.

Peter aka IsoBuster Just get back to me @Jon, and we'll go over the results.
I don't see the point of cluttering this thread with this. It's meant for quick questions about functionality etc.

Just know that when data recovery is needed, there are no guarantees. Run the free test version first and see if the data you're after can be found.
If not, reach out to me ( ) and I try to help.

Jeremy User I got this software several years ago and so far it has been worth more than I payed for it, it has a lot of advanced functions that are beyond what most data recovery options offer. The imaging options are extremely valuable and because the software is so compact (also portable and easy to put on drives to image them if they can't be easily removed) it tends to stay stable when many other programs stop responding, this makes it a very attractive forensic tool. I collect these types of programs and so far R-studio and ISObuster are the ones I actually use outside of testing.

Jon Spain For anyone interested, the program has almost reached 45%. There is a lot there and the speed indicates some care being taken, I'll report again on Sunday.
