dares - rescue files from damaged CDs and DVDs


dares -i image -s path [-h2i h2i_file] [-a] [-m] [-llogfile]
dares-qt [-i image] [-s path] [-h2i h2i_file] [-a] [-m] [-llogfile]


Dares scans a CD/DVD image or a CD/DVD and tries to find files. It does not depend on
filesystem information, but instead uses the Magic library to identify files. Doing it
this way Dares can recover files even when the filesystem (ISO-9660 or UDF) on the disc is
damaged and cannot be mounted anymore.

Dares can use H2cdimage (ftp://ftp.heise.de/pub/ct/ctsi/h2cdimage.zip) files to rescue
data from heavily damaged optical discs.


-i CD/DVD image file or device.

-s Directory where the rescued files shall be stored.

-h2i Optional h2i file for the CD/DVD image.

-a Store all found files without any user interaction.

-m Use Mime types instead of a description. -l Logfile (default: dares.log)
