How To Recover Important Data From Unreadable CDs and DVDs

It’s never easy to copy data from a CD or DVD that has corrupt bad sectors, especially when the disc is scratched or unreadable. Normally, the system shows an error notification ‘File cannot be copied’ or ‘Cannot Copy File: Cannot read from the source file or disk.’ You may want a third-party tool to copy that important data of yours. There is a Windows utility available called ‘Unstoppable Copier’ developed by ‘Roadkil’ which copies and restores unrecoverable data from unreadable discs.

Roadkil’s Unstoppable Copier allows you to copy files, documents, photos, videos, and other important data from disks that have bad sectors, scratches, or error while reading data. It follows a method which tries to recover every file from disks with physical damage. In the end, almost all the files on the disks can be recovered. The program has also a backup functionality where you can schedule it on a daily basis using a command line parameter.

How to Use Unstoppable Copier?
  1. The interface is simple to understand and easier to navigate. It has four tabs namely Copy, Batch Mode, Settings, and Help/About.
  2. Firstly, in the “Copy” tab, select the source and target drives using ‘Browse’ button.
  3. In the “Settings” tab, move the slider to the middle so that it stays at a central point between best and fastest recovery of the data.
  4. Check the option ‘Skip Damaged Files Automatically’ or else it may take more time to copy usable data.
  5. You can copy data from hard disk drives, CDs, DVDs, Floppy drives, and USB drives which have bad sectors or partially corrupted file systems.

In Batch Mode, you can use Unstoppable Copier as backup tool to create transfer lists and save them for future use. You can view how corrupted bytes were transferred, the number of errors found, and the total number of copied files. The latest version 5.2 now supports Unicode, Automatic System Shutdown, and Basic Context Menu Integration. Download Roadkil’s Unstoppable Copier application for free.
