Windows 7: Recovering DVD Burning data

Recovering DVD Burning data

I'm not sure if this is the right section, so forgive me if it isn't.

Right, I was basically writing a series of files onto my dvd-r using the windows 7 cd burner (the default one). The problem is, I cut-pasted them onto the dvd.
Now, this was the fourth DVD being burnt and I had done the other three quite successfully. However, the third DVD, despite deing burnt, was still showing the files as *not* burnt. The problem was that the completion dialog hadn't shown up.

That didn't seem to be a problem. I therefore deleted those files (which were written successfully) and cut-pasted the next batch for the next DVD. So far so good.

However, the burn completion dialog now showed up. In my haste, I clicked finished. Because of this, my newly copied files were deleted (as Windows thought that they were the temp. files of the previous disk!

Is there any way to recover them without having to run a recovery utility?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

My primary advise is to chuck using Windows Burner but use Burnaware Free instead.

That said, almost all burners give the choice of either closing the burning session or keeping it open for the next session(s) in case all the space on the media has not been used up. So if you didn't close the session you can use the same media again to burn the files. I have never used Windows Burner so I don't know if that choice exists in it.

I've heard from my friend (I really not tried it by myself) that the flash Data Recovery, an updated version have been added by expected support of FAT 12 file system. This can be extremely useful if you still need to recover your data if its in the form of pictures or images. So you did not tell about your file types? When we use to do DVD brennen or dvd burning we often need to use such a system which can save our data, as sometimes our laptops get crashed.
