data-recovery


Hello!

Is there a way to recover data from a cdrw? I've only deleted the TOC with cdrecord. So, the data is still on the cdrw. But how can i access it?
I have thougt about "dd", but you have to mount the device to use it!?

Any help is very welcome!!

Actually, I'm pretty sure you could raw dump the data from the device into a file without bothering to mount it... you'll probably just end up with garbage though.

dd if=/dev/hdc of=/home/bob/hope/and/a/prayer.iso

I think I did this to create bootlegs of the Diablo 2 CDs, but I can't remember offhand if I mounted the drive.

Cheers,

Finegan

As far as I know you must not mount a drive when performing dd.
