  • Hidden files on a RW CD

    I tried to add more files to a mutisession Rewritable CD, produced by another PC and ignored the warning it would erase exisiting data.

    Is there any software around to recover the lost files?

    Thanks

    Usually, the files are not deleted, but the media FAT is altered in such a manner that the old files are not readable anymore.
    I would give BadCopy a try (never used it for this purpose, but it did saved few faulty CDs I had).
    Good luck, and keep the forum posted.
    If you have some spare time, here are some articles worth reading regarding the burning technology:
