ISOBuster is intended to recover lost data from multiple types of storage media, including discs, memory cards, external hard disks, etc. Its main advantage over similar tools is that it supports practically all file systems. In fact, it is said to use its own method to retrieve data independently of the file system supported by a particular operating system.

ISOBuster is quite easy to use. Its graphic user interface is not very different from that of a file explorer, which enables the user to start recovering files right away. All it requires is selecting the media or drive you wish to recover data from and wait until ISOBuster scans the drive. Then, you can pick the desired items and select a recovery format. You may find quite useful that the tool lets you save the recovered information in multiple image formats, such as ISO, BIN, etc.

In general, ISOBuster is an excellent data recovery application. When tested, it could recover lost information from a friend’s pendrive without any difficulty; suffice to say that this happened after various unsuccessful attempts using other programs, some of them quite popular.
