I have been downloading a lot of various, day to day needed data. Like Movies / Songs / Freewares etc. And many a times have seen that the files get a virus or becomes un-readable, and many the file its tough/and very slow to move them from one disk to other (Because its a huge number of files).
This could be cause by many scanning process in system (Anti Virus / Spyware Removers etc)
There could be many other reasons for them to get corrupted but usually its a virus or bad sector.
So finally I got a way i.e. to use the ISO/DAA or any other IMAGE writing, this is just incredible, I find the following advantages:
- With Zip it again takes it as a normal folder and looks into all the files which are zipped so no use of putting them there.
- Scanning of the Image file happens in whole not the files inside it.
- Virus can’t effect them as they are read only files.
- Very fast in moving / copying as it’s treated as a single file.
