Hopefully someone can give me some advice here. I have a very important cd that is damaged. It is one of a kind unfortunatly.
I did have a backup but it was broke during my move. I pulled out the original to make a new backup and to my suprise there is what looks like a small bubble inbetween the data layer and back foil “label.” There is no damage to the label at all, so I am completely dumbfounded on how it happened. No scratches on either side ect…
Anyway the cd contains a norton 2 norton files. Ghost.exe and the large .gho file that contains the data. Offfff course it can not read the larger file which is the important one.
The bubble is about 1/8th long and maybe the width of a pen head. It run around the disc “not from middle to outside”
I am currently running Bad Copy pro to try and recover anything but it has been going for almost 2 days now…
Is it possible to extract a ghost file and disregard the damaged parts? There are only a few files that I need once uncompressed.
I am messing around on old cd’s with try to replace the reflective surface but I keep taking the data layer off… bahhhhhhhh
I am willing to do anything here. Send it in to a prof… It doesnt matter PLEASE HELP
thanks in advance to anyone with input.
