    How to extract data from corrupted iso file.


    Sir I have an iso file of size 404MB and the file is corrupted so can you suggest how to extract data from the file. It contains lot of pdf files which are valuable so I want data without any loss(atleast minimum).


    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    How bad is the corruption? If the file is severely corrupted, you might not be able to recover any data.

    Can you mount it to the file system. Try:
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/brokeniso
    mount -o loop <iso_filename> /mnt/brokeniso
    cd /mnt/brokeniso
    You could try specifying a filesystem type for the iso. It should be autodetected but if it can't detect you could always add '-t iso9660' to your mount command.
