file verification and repair tool ICE ECC is a file verification and repair tool that enables you to protect your important files against digital corruption using Reed-Solomon codes. The program is not intended as a main backup solution, but rather as a backup for your backup - it can be included on CDs or DVDs before you store your data, allowing you to recover data that has become corrupt due to age of the media or scratches. You can protect selected files or entire folders by simply selecting them and having the program generate an ECC file. If you ever need to verify whether the data has been modified or corrupted, just select the appropriate .ECC file and load it into ICE ECC, which will then analyze the files and can recover any corrupted data.

Very nice and original 5 stars by TheDarkLord Nov 22, 2005 (Read all my 7 reviews)
I couldn't believe just how well it worked. I tested it be making a recovery file for a folder, and then made changes to the original to see if the program could recover them. It worked like a charm! It even recovered files that I had deleted from the folder; and this was at the 25% redundancy level (dictates how much recovery is possible). It is also possible to set the redundancy level above 100% so that you can recover files even if the ECC recovery file itself is corrupted! The size of the recovery file is significant, however. If you wanted to backup a CD, the ECC file would be approximately 200MB. This may seem a bit large, but as a "backup for you backup" its not too bad. Personally I think you should still make a full backup of important files- the program does have its limitations and is really only used for data loss due to digital corruption; it won't work if you accidentally delete large chunks of data. This is a unique program and worth getting. show Review details
