'[OT]:Recovering CD files'

I did a dopey thing. After backing up HDD files to a CD I
deleted both the HDD originals (which I wanted to do) and
also accidentally the CD files. On the HDD they were in a
folder but on the CD they are loose files, so it didn't register
that I'd deleted the same thing twice. I was checking the CD
and just lost track of which folder I was in when I dumped them
to the Recycle Bin, which was then emptied, so they ain't nowhere
no more. The space on the CD is still occupied by the files (~100MB)
although of course there are no file names shown. I'm hoping there's
a way to re-enable them. I'm using Win98SE and the CD is set up
for access as a file drag-drop drive

So you don't worry: there is a way.  They make programs that do this.  This
why most encryption programs not only delete a file, but also "wipe" the
disk drive i.e. over write with zeros. There is probably free software that
will do this. Have a look at http://download.com.com/2001-20-0.html

Thanks for the suggestion Clayton but I'm not sure it's as simple
as that. I've found utilities that will undelete HDD files but none
for recovering CD files. There may be one out there. If there isn't
is it possible to get into the CD with an editor and manually copy
data blocks back to the HDD ? How would I then re-enable the
file ? The only experience I had with this was a long time ago on
the old Commodore 1541 drive. You could get into the FAT with
a sector editor and look at attributes and block links to reconstruct
or alter files/data

I know the latest DirectCD can do scandisk on CD but I doubt it helps.  Can
you recover the delete files on your harddisk instead of the CD?

Cheers, Ling SM

Jinx,

I think a piece of software called ISOBUSTER may assist. Note I
haven't used it for this purpose, but it can extract binary raw data
from CD. It's often used for certain nefarious purposes. However, a
google search will reveal it's whearabouts it's shareware it might
also pay to look at other ISO copiers or possibly Nortons ghost 2000
or above edition might allow you to copy it back onto your HD and
then a recovery prog might be able to help.

I just noticed that the DirectCD | CD Utilities has an undelete feature for
CD-RW.  My ver is 5.1. There are some info on DirectCD undelete features
here:

Contact me offlist if I could help.

What is a CD ? Not a CDROM ?

I've found it (easy) and used it to get the data off the CD. Now I
just have to figure out what to do next. At least I know the raw
data is safe. Isobuster is shareware, as you said. It seems to
be functional enough to do what I need to. Not that I'm cheap,
but I've burned many dozens of CDs and this is the first cock-up
so I'm not sure buying a utility I'd use once is very economic

Whilst poking around the PC in the vain hope there might be a
copy of the files I discovered that there was 2.5GB taken up by
.TMP garbage (some of it very very old !!!!), in the Windows/Temp
folder. Most of it was from recent transferring of vinyl LPs to CD.
So although I've temporarily lost some files, there was the pay-off
of regaining a large amount of HDD space that I might not otherwise
have gone looking for. Which actually was the point of backiing up
those files in the first place  ;-)  If / when I do manage to recover
them, I'd consider that a good win-win result
