Recover data from erased CD-RW

Hi, all. :)

It looks like I accidentally erased a CD-RW that had some personal information backed-up onto it. hehe

1. Is it possible to recover data from an erased CD-RW?

2. If so, is there some software that is recommended for the job?

It would take me quite a while to find some of the information elsewhere; so, I'm just trying to save some time here.

Your input is much appreciated!

That method sounds like a load of BS to me. I don't think you can get it back from the disk, unless it is in your Recyble bin.

No, the data is not in my recycle bin -- i wish.

I found some info at the isoBuster site, but I think this is a dead deal. O well.

Thanks! :)

I used EasyRecovery Pro V6 but it was on my HDD, I do not know if it will work for CDR-W's

Thanks guys.

From browsing the Net, it looks like most anything that works on the HDD won't work on CD's, but I'll look into it. I'll definitely check out Zip Recovery Toolbox.

Thanks for the leads. :)
