./sysutils/dvdisaster, Protects data on optical media with error correcting codes

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.79.5, Package name: dvdisaster-0.79.5, Maintainer: shattered

Optical media (CD, DVD, BD) keep their data only for a finite time
(typically for many years). After that time, data loss develops slowly
with read errors growing from the outer media region towards the inside.

Dvdisaster stores data on CD/DVD/BD in a way that it is fully
recoverable even after some read errors have developed. This enables you
to rescue the complete data to a new medium.

Data loss is prevented by using error correcting codes. Error correction
data is either added to the medium or kept in separate error correction
files. dvdisaster works at the image level so that the recovery does not
depend on the file system of the medium. The maximum error correction
capacity is user-selectable.

Log message:
Changes 0.79.5:
This is pretty much a relaunch of the project,
the internet site and the accompanying documentation.
There are too much changes for a detailed report.

The most prominent feature of this version is that
the multithreaded RS03 codec reached production
quality, and all required features have been implemented.
A few things will be added with the next releases:
- adaptive reading is currently disabled as it does
  not support RS03 yet and would crash or misbehave
  on RS03 error correction data
- a heuristic for an exhaustive re-discovery of RS03
  structures in a badly damaged medium is missing in
  the decoder
But these things should not keep you from using RS03,
as the encoder is complete and future decoder enhancements
do not affect already created RS03 data.
