IsoBuster is the ultimate data data recovery software that supports ALL types of media, including CD/DVD, BD/HD DVD, Hard Drives, SSM, USB flash drives, Zip drives, Jaz drives, floppies etc.

IsoBuster lets you rescue lost files from a bad or trashed CD, DVD or a Blu-Ray disc. Also it allows to recover deleted files from a Hard Drive, Memory card or of from flash media that Windows says needs to be formatted!

The program is a highly specialized yet easy to use media data recovery tool. It supports all disc formats and all common file systems. Start up app, Insert a disc, select the drive (if not selected already) and let IsoBuster mount the media.

IsoBuster immediately shows you all the tracks and sessions located on the media, combined with all file-systems that are present. This way you get easy access, just like explorer, to all the files and folders per file-system.

IsoBuster 5.1 Release Notes

Changes / New:

  • Ability to analyze a FAT (12, 16 or 32) and work out all the files it references without the need for a full media scan [Professional license or better]
  • Ability to try and figure out file extensions of files found via analyzing the FAT (via right mouse click “Try to find matching extensions”)
  • Ability to try and figure out *.CHK files’ true file extension (in FAT “FOUND.???” folders (e.g. “FOUND.000”), also via right mouse click)
  • Show NTFS Junctions and Symbolic links by applying a shortcut overlay icon, and by providing link information in the Properties dialog
  • Finding logical drives (drive letter volumes) is now default ON on modern systems (W10 and higher) after a clean install

Improvements:

  • Improved extraction dialog scaling when dragged to a different monitor
  • Improved search dialog scaling when dragged to a different monitor
  • Improved message dialog scaling when dragged to a different monitor
  • Improved properties dialog scaling when dragged to a different monitor
  • Improved options dialog scaling when dragged to a different monitor
  • Improved ‘About’ dialog to properly scale the image on all systems and for all dpi settings
  • Improved file-system icons for better scaling and to look crisp for all dpi settings
  • Improvements detecting raw (2352 bytes per block) generic CD images
  • Auto-open the MDS file when an MDF file is opened (and when the filename matches)
  • Creating an MD5 can now be done straight to file, or the result can be shown in the edit window
  • Workaround for an unknown 12 byte header in rare ISO/IMG files made by an unknown application
  • Improved FAT detection by double checking if it’s not a BitLocker encrypted Partition
  • Improved MBR partition parsing by double checking if it’s not an image of a BitLocker encrypted Partition
  • The level up, previous and next selection-history buttons now have a shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + (Arrow-up or Arrow-left or Arrow-right)
  • Remove “OpenWithProgids” entries again from the registry when disabling an extension because Windows 10/11 appears to use it as backup, which defeats the purpose of disabling the association
  • Get the proper size for logical drives (Volumes) instead of the physical drive’s size the Partition/Volume is on
  • Changed a logical drive’s name to reflect on what physical drive the volume is located
  • Option to clear an optical disc drive’s content after the eject button is clicked
  • Option to change how the media/cd/hdd/.. filename for an image file is formed
  • Stay with font size 9 when the screen dpi > 100% (e.g. 150%) (revert 5.0 change (in case of higher dpi))
  • Show speed when extracting (or cloning) Media Segments
  • Draw a line between different types of devices, Optical vs HDD (Physical) vs HDD (Logical) vs Image Files
  • Display up to 6 digits behind the comma when showing the percentage of bad sectors, so that only a few errors on larger volumes still produce a value different from 100%, e.g. 99.999999 %
  • Ability to launch the Edit Window with the contents of all tabs in the Properties dialog
  • Updated libwim-15.dll to version 1.13.6

Fixes:

  • Fixed a 64 bit instability (and program shut down) that could happen on certain systems. If your version runs fine, this doesn’t affect you
  • Fixed an unexpected shut down while parsing certain FAT file systems
  • Fixed parsing CloneCD *.ccd image files using the 64bit version (it was not a problem with the 32 bit version)
  • Fixed creating an MD5 file of CUE + ISO combinations. Only the CUE’s MD5 would be recorded in the file
  • Fixed building an error list for media with some read errors at the end (sometimes the range started incorrectly at address 0)
  • Fixed NTFS hard links’ file-naming (which could be off, depending on the order of filenames in the MFT records)
  • Fixed an NTFS corruption issue with LZX-compressed WofCompressedData named streams
  • Fixed it so that overlay icons are shown again in the right hand side ListView (for instance shortcut overlay icons) (Broken since 4.9)
  • Fixed FAT meta files’ size and offset when the FAT was detected inside a boot image on CD
