    Does anyone know of any utilities that can recover data from a DVD-RAM disc that has been accidentally erased?

    I was working with Nero tonight and accidentally selected the wrong drive to erase and "quick erased" all my important backup files.

    I gather that when a disc is "quick erased", only the file tables containing file headers are wiped, and the actual data still remains on the disc, whereas when "full erase" is used, the actual content is wiped too.

    Does this mean I have a chance of recovering the data? I really hope some of you can help me...

    And I know all about backing up data and keeping it safe, I just made a simple mistake and didn't realise the disc was even in the drive...

    You might get a better response to this in the DVD Recorders forum.
