Data recovery

Very excited because I just found some software which enabled me to recover the photos from our first few days in Tanzania and our leaving party from a scratched CD. It is over a year since the CD got scratched, and it was only at this point that I realised backing up onto CD then deleting them from my computer to save space was incredibly dumb. I even bought a rather ridiculous device in the states that polishes the surface of the CD in order to remove scratches physically. It didn’t work at all. My CD drive made funny noises when I put the CD in, and I could never access any of the pics. Until I downloaded ISOBuster, which recovered all the lost photos in no time at all. The programme was free to boot. I will probably make a donation. I had really given up on those pictures. I am so happy!

One of the nicest things about this is that I had lots of pictures from Leah’s daughter’s first birthday party on that CD. Leah will be so happy to get them.
