I have a pile of data cds with severe scratches on both surfaces. I have done a real good job at removing the scratches on the laser side of the disk. I am using ISO buster to recreate an inage of the disk. It has the ability to reread bad sectors. This has come in handy. I have cleaned the disk reread and retrieved more data on each pass.
So here is the issue. I know that data stored in areas with label side scratches is not retrievable. So i was looking for a way to visualize the bad sectors list that isobuster produces in order to determin if further repairs would help or if the remaining bad sectors lie at label side damage.
