Ever reported data recovering from broken CD/DVD/HDD?

I now understand better. However, if "… you have to break DVDs in smaller pieces as a DVD fragment the same size you used to break CD's into may contain as much as 13 times the amount of information than a CD fragment." then I do not understand why are not at least a few reports of DVD fragments recovering, being at least 13 times easier to get data from them than from a CD.

Or said more correctly Not 13 times easier(as if there are no report then I suppose the difficulty has to be the same)but containing a DVD much more density of information perhaps I think it shoud be easier to recover data.

I guess we are speaking two too different languages.

Information on DVD is "more densely written" than on CD's.

Reading

smaller characters

is more difficult than reading

BIG ONES

.

And we do not have even a single valid report of anyone actually reading data from a broken CD (i.e. written in

easier to read

characters).

When we will have one, then the technique applied may possibly be refined, bettered, made more accurate, so that even

smaller characters

could be read.

Well, the Fed's can also (or are sometimes cited as being able to) decrypt *any* encrypted hard disk

or maybe not

Some progresses must have been made since 2010

I popped some corn and sat back in my easy chair to read this thread, instead of watching Alan Cumming introduce another fine Masterpiece Theater offering.

Solid performance from jaclaz…though, I must say that I was disappointed that the chase scene and subsequent shootout was cut short. When is the next episode airing? wink
