    • Because I used Four times and it did work perfectly. In fact, One time the flash drive that I was trying to recover data from was so damaged that it did NOT mount automatically, but, the ddrescue program managed successfully to fetch HUGE amount of data from that very damaged/corrupt flash drive.

This app saved my ass after my filesystem corrupted along with the MBR. Great software, free, and a tiny download

Yes, a GUI would definitely be a plus, but I still found it very simple to use. And, most importantly, I was able to repair a 4GB flash disk containing a lot of really important files that somehow had its partition table corrupted! All in about 10 minutes. So this app gets 11 stars in my book :)

In need of a GUI for sure, but it does its job, and quickly. I use it along side Spinrite on almost all my data recovery ventures.
