TrueDisc archival burning
TrueDisc today introduced its self-titled software, which promises to burn discs which are far easier to recover than standard media. According to the company, as much as 90 percent of a disc can be damaged before the program is unable to read it. The key is the creation of "master copy" files on each disc -- if the data cannot be read through normal means, TrueDisc can be used to reconstruct the information using proprietary algorithms. Notably, the program does not support rewritable discs, only CD-R, DVD-R, or DVD+R/DVD+R DL. The software is on sale now for $52 and requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later.
