The .ecc file extension is used for an application data file format that was developed by Carsten Gnörlich. These ECC files are generated by the dvdisaster software, which is a CD / DVD backup program that was also created by Carsten Gnörlich. Notable functions of dvdisaster include the ability to fully recover optical media data even when read errors are present in the CD / DVD that is queued in this software for backup. This allows users to create a fully functional CD or DVD copy of the optical media disk with read errors.These ECC files are also known as dvdisaster error-correction files. The content of an ECC file is error-correction data that is generated by the dvdisaster software for a CD or DVD backup project. Since the dvdisaster program is integrated with data protection functions, CDs or DVDs with read errors may be fully recovered and copied unto a new optical media disk by the dvdisaster software.There are no third party applications that can be used to open these .ecc files. Because these ECC files do not contain human-readable data, it is advised to leave these .ecc files alone so as for the associated CD / DVD backup copy to work properly.
