You will probably need a recovery application that can unzip the files that were previously compressed. The program should also be able to obtain the back up data from the discs that were written in several stages. The DVD data recovery program will most likely benefit from an internal UDF reader. Even if you have erased your files from your DVD you should be able perform some kind of data recovery. Improperly closed disks can also be recovered by the software. The software will likely be able to identify missing or corrupt data on the ISO/Joliet discs even if they have a damaged file system.
