AnyReader is a data copy software for non-readable media: CD, DVD, LAN-Drives, flash memory, ZIP disks, floppy disks, etc. AnyReader effectively copies and saves corrupt data from any type of disks or erroneous connection where the standard copying methods fail. The program supports resumed downloads from the remote PC if the connection was broken while copying (especially useful for unreliable Wi-Fi networks). AnyReader is great for recovering files from scratched CDs, defective Flash Memory or Floppy and Hard Disks. Normally, when your computer is unable to copy files from a damaged disk it will abort and delete the part of the file it has copied. AnyReader will continue copying right to the end; any data that hasn't been recovered after several retries is replaced with blanks. This will allow you to truly copy every byte of information that can be read at all.
