+This program will help you recover disks with bad sectors. You can recover
+files as well complete devices.
+In case if finds sectors which simply cannot be recoverd, it writes an empty
+sector to the outputfile and continues. If you're recovering a CD or a DVD and
+the program cannot read the sector in "normal mode", then the program will try
+to read the sector in "RAW mode" (without error-checking etc.).
+This toolkit also has a utility called 'mergebad': mergebad merges multiple
+images into one. This can be usefull when you have, for example, multiple CD's
+with the same data which are all damaged. In such case, you can then first use
+recoverdm to retrieve the data from the damaged CD's into image-files and then
+combine them into one image with mergebad.
