ICE ECC Protects your data from corruption

Did you know that a typical CD-R / DVD-R disk can hold its data intact for only a few years? After some years recorded digital data from a CD or DVD become corrupted, some of its file may lost and normally you can’t recover it. ICE ECC is the perfect solution to this problem - before you store your data, protect it against corruption with ICE ECC. It is a file verification and repair tool that allows you to protect your important files and sensitive data against digital corruption using Reed-Solomon codes.
Using ICE ECC is very easy. To protect a file against corruption, just select the file/files/directories with the program by navigating the explorer-style window and click Create. This creates recovery file/files of the original files. You can easily control the size and number of the recovery files.When you want to verify whether the file has been modified or if the data in it has been corrupted, just select the appropriate .ecc file and click Verify. ICE ECC will then do a full analysis of the file and let you know if it has been corrupted; in that case ICE ECC will automatically recover it for you.
However, Reed-Solomon codes require a lot of CPU power for calculation purposes. ICE ECC use RAM in very heavy mode (read/write more than 2GB RAM per second). All this is factors make stress situation for computer hardware. CPU and RAM work in burn mode. If ICE ECC is used on a computer with weak cooling or using over clocked CPU some hardware failure can occur.
