Over the years i have archived lots of information to CD or DVD discs but never really did more than verify that the disks manifest was readable by my OS. Now as i go back and look at these disks i find that i get errors or the system hangs when i try to move the data from backup to disk. I have experienced this both on windows and OSX.
Here is what i am looking for:
- Mac or Windows based software that is free or relatively inexpensive that will allow me to recover information from bad CD's or DVD's to a hard drive disk.
- Tips on backing up data to trying to recover bad data.
Note that all the disks files list properly with out any errors. Most disks are just like new others have small circular scratches from sitting in a spindle and spinning during its many transports from college to apartments to the new house.
