ISO Buster is a data recovery tool. It supports extracting damaged files from not only standard hard disks but also all sorts of optical media, such as CDs, DVDs, and BDs. More than just that, it even allows rescuing information from disc images, USB storage devices, and memory cards as well. It supports various file systems, such as FAT, NTFS, and Linux EXT. However, some less frequent file systems, mostly some used by Unix, Linux, and Nintendo are detected but cannot be explored.

The application has a nice interface, which looks very similar to Windows Explorer. All you need to do is to select the drive they want to get scanned and wait until the results are shown. Expert users would surely be glad to know that the program can also be used directly from the command line.

Fortunately, the utility is highly effective in recovering data thanks to its powerful extraction engine, which uses various error-handling algorithms to reconstruct damaged code. For this purpose, the tool retrieves data using different mechanisms. Finally, it also allows restoring data from a DVD+RW disc after it has been formatted.

All in all, ISO Buster provides highly effective data recovery from various types of storage media. This product is shareware. Unfortunately, its trial version does not allow testing all of its features and has a time limit of 30 days.
