Convert your text files into images

Open your text files with IrfanView and save as image.

I always use IrfanView and GIMP for all my photo works. If you haven't tried them then please give one. ;-)

I recovered my quickly erased CDRW.

Happened in 2006 August.
I had a CDRW which was the only source for my all projects as my hdd was crashed. I tried to find many software on net, found forensic sites but they were charging much money. Being a student, i wasn't able to produce that amount then i decided to search for software based recovery.

I found Isobuster, that wasn't capable of quick erased CDRW's data recovery. But i found a good software - Back2Life. I tried to recover the cd, using "force RW mode".
Hah! it recovered the table but wasn't recovering data as it was a demo version and limited to 64KB file recovery. It must have burned some part on the CDRW. I was disappointed b/c i had very less time, only few days to go. Then my mind lightened an idea and i again used Isobuster, hey! it recovered my data and i successfully saved my all projects. I know it could also help many of you.

That's why we say: Problem occurred for one person but gave solution to many.
Tip: Use back2life version > 2.3 and then use Isobuster.
Now TestDisk is my favorite data recovery program, it now offers optical media recovery.

Rescue tip - copy locked files.

How to copy locked files in windows?

Recovery tools can be used to copy the locked files as they don't deal with the file handles, they have full access to the disk. I have successfully copied SAM from Windows which said to be an impossible task!
