For cavity-assisted optomechanical cooling experiments, it has been shown in the literature that the cavity bandwidth needs to be smaller than the mechanical frequency in order to achieve the quantum ground state of the mechanical oscillator, which is the so-called resolved-sideband or good-cavity limit. We provide a new but physically equivalent insight into the origin of such a limit: that is information loss due to a finite cavity bandwidth. With an optimal feedback control to recover those information, we can surpass the resolved-sideband limit and achieve the quantum ground state. Interestingly, recovering those information can also significantly enhance the optomechanical entanglement. Especially when the environmental temperature is high, the entanglement will either exist or vanish critically depending on whether information is recovered or not, which is a vivid example of a quantum eraser.
