Description:

Rescue lost files from a bad or trashed CD or DVD or a Blu Ray disc (e.g. BD or HD DVD) ! Save important documents, precious pictures or video from the family, your only system back up, ... IsoBuster can do it all !

IsoBuster is a highly specialized yet easy to use optical media data recovery tool. It supports all optical disc formats and all common optical disc file-systems. Start up IsoBuster, Insert a disc, select the drive (if not selected already) and let IsoBuster mount the media. IsoBuster immediately shows you all the tracks and sessions located on the media, combined with all file-systems that are present. This way you get easy access, just like explorer, to all the files and folders per file-system. Instead of being limited to one file-system that the OS picks for you, you have access to "the complete picture". Access data from older sessions, access data that your OS (e.g. Windows) does not see or hides from you etc.

Revision History:

Version 4.5
  • Release Date: Dec 29, 2019
  • Changes / New:
    • Ability to resume a scan for missing files and folders, if the content is still shown
    • Ability to save scan results (as *.ibr files)
    • Ability to load previous (*.ibr) scan results and resume the scan if so desired
    • Ability to import XML formatted lists of files and folders (if you happen to know where the files are physically located on the medium)
    • Support for more type Philips HDD recorders (DVR-3500)
    • Support for Brother typewriter *.256 floppy images that use a primitive FAT like file system
    • Ability to extract search results (files and folders) but preserve their relative path instead of creating a flat list of all found files and folders
    Improvements:
    • Rewrote parts of the ISO9660 parsing to get rid of the annoying memory allocation warnings in case of extremely large buffer allocations
    • Hide the annoying 'out of spec' errors for severe ISO9660 'out of spec' situations by default
    • ISO9660 Scan options now features showing both 'soft' and 'severe' 'out of spec' errors
    • Support for NCR_DIAGS' butchered ISO9660 version
    • Support for ISO9660 implementations that are not 2048 bytes-per-sector based. They're extremely rare but I managed to find an image file
    • Various other ISO9660 (and its derivatives) related improvements
    • When finding HDD / SSM / USB etc is not set in options and IsoBuster is not running elevated, the moment finding such devices is enabled, IsoBuster will ask to run elevated. The prompt asking to restart now allows to restart without saving current selection. This is so that once a normal user has gone through this, the application will not automatically want to elevate next time as well, because once elevated, changes in options are made for the elevated user and not for the normal user
    • Recognize Amiga floppy images *.adf, *.adz, *.dms and *.fdi as 512-byte block disk images rather than CD images
    • Support Image file extensions *.512, *.256 and *.128, which forces IsoBuster to treat the image file using that block size
    • When opening a *.CDT, *.ISO or *.BIN image file, IsoBuster now first looks for a *.CUE file with the same name in the same folder, and if it exists IsoBuster opens the CUE instead
    • Address input fields now also support notation x.. (aside from already supported 0x.. and ..h) to input hex data
    • Implemented tag <%OBJECTS> in the file export functionality to be able to show how many files+folders a folder contains
    • Implemented tags <%ATTRIB(U)>, <%TYPE(U)>, <%UIC> in the file export functionality to be able to show properties/attributes that are language independent (Uniform)
    • Revert to Lucida Console, for the mono-spaced font in Sector View, in the odd case that Courier is not installed (As seen with WinPE)
    • Improved the breadcrumb GUI under certain borderline conditions, for instance under, but not limited to, Wine on Ubuntu etc.
    • Plenty of other improvements, changes and re-writes in the core code / engine, as this is a living project and to deal with the ever growing new functionality
    • Various other GUI improvements
    Fixes:
    • Fixed bug that caused the (right mouse click invoked) Search dialog to always find all objects rather than the objects identifying with the requested search parameter (Not the search control in top right corner)
    • Fixed exception error that can happen when a CUE is paired with a file who's size is not an exact multiple of the block size mentioned in the CUE
    • Fixed it so that text file parsing also works on UCS-2 BE (UTF16 Big Endian (aka byte swapped / Motorola)) formatted data
    • Fixed bug so that tags <%>> and <%>=> are properly recognized
    • Fixed exception error that could occur when the scan for missing files and folders was immediately aborted, even before actual reading started
    • Fixed not finding all files and folders (depending from image to image) in an El Torito embedded FAT boot image
    • Fixed HFS and MFS file and folder date and time stamps (Issue introduced in IsoBuster 4.3)
