How To Recover Data From Scratched CDDVD Disc Without Any Software (1)

Burning data to DVD is one of the cheapest way to store data. But it's not the safest (one of the dangerous way indeed) place for your data. If you are one of them who store files regularly to DVD, then no question about how well you are taking care of that DVD disc, but you may have put your files at a high risk. Even if you place that disc in a safe place, handle it carefully and make sure that it doesn't get any scratch at all, yet that disc may get corrupted without any notice. At one day when you will need your files, you will see that the disc has been corrupted and you have to loose all data inside it. So it's recommended NOT TO USE DVD/CD DISK to store your files. But what if you already did this mistake and looking for a way to handle it? Let's learn it how.

There's a lot of software available saying that those can recover data from corrupted disc effectively. I don't know all of them but a few I tried seems like worse then the worst to me. And as far I know, all of them are using similar tactics to complete this action. They try to copy data by skipping the corrupted one's. What's point of using those?

I will now show you how to EFFECTIVLY recover all of your data stored in a courrpted disc without any third party tool. But please note that not all disc can be recovered. So please take care of that. I have tried to recover data from 7 of my disc and 6 times this process works for me. Only one time I failed. So let's get started.

We are going to need a scratched disc and a tube of "Tooth Paste". If you are wondering about "What on earth will that Tooth Paste do?" type of question, then follow me for the answer.
This is what I am going to deal with.

Now to recover files from it, I am going to use Tooth Paste only. Just take some Tooth Paste on your finger and rub it gently over the disc.

Make sure to cover the whole space (where the DVD-ROM’s laser will read) with paste. Then just leave it for as much as you can. (Minimum 6 hour is recommended)

  10. @Ankita Sure you can go for it. But if you want to go for a little bit soft thing, then use any shampoo instead of toothpaste. Hope it will work

  12. I am not sure how to say.........Is it really safe to apply paste on a disc?

  13. Yes you can apply toothpaste without hesitation. The only harm can be done by your finger, if you rub real hard then you disc might get scratched.

  15. Nice Piece of Information.

    One of the most common method to recover lost data is use of windows data recovery software. A lot of data recovery software are available on the Internet. You need to do some research to find the best one. I always preffer windows data recovery tools by Stellar.
