Recover data from ISO image

An iso, bin and img is an image file that is an exact replica of partition or drive. When you create a disk image it will be a large file which will contain all the data of that particular partition or drive. If you use a third party tool which can create a RAW disk image then you can use it to recover data using Remo Recover. Before you start recovery, it is always advisable to assess the situation and then plan further. If your hard drive is experiencing errors like firmware corruption, overheating or bad sectors then create a disk image before starting the recovery process and then use Remo Recover which can process such image files to recover data. If the image file is RAW image and the extension is .iso or .bin then convert the extension to .img to enable Remo to read that file.
