Computers have long become an integral part of our lives and most of our data is stored on Floppy, CD, DVD, Hard Drive, USB Stick, Flash Drive, Memory Card, SD or on another type of media or format.
Making a backup of your important data by writing it to CD, DVD or other media is easy and fast – But it’s never 100% safe!
So what if something goes wrong? What if you lose precious pictures of your loved ones or important business related information? What if you pressed delete by accident? What if the Floppy or CD or DVD or Memory card that you safely stored away doesn’t load anymore?
IsoBuster is a very valuable data recovery program which was created by the Belgian company Smart Projects. It was founded in 1995 by Peter Van Hove.
