What is an IBDAT file?
An IBDAT file is a data file created by Smart Projects IsoBuster, a program used to recover data from damaged disks and file systems. It contains data blocks of a larger drive that are referenced by location paths stored in an .IBADR file. IBDAT files are created with IBADR files by IsoBuster to debug issues encountered by the program.
The IBDAT file only stores the blocks of data from a large drive that are necessary for debugging an issue. This allows small disk image files to be created for much larger drives.
NOTE: IBDAT files are extremely rare since they are only used for debugging purposes.
