  • GNU ddrescue

    GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying hard to rescue data in case of read errors. The basic operation of ddrescue is fully automatic. That is, you don't have to wait for an error, stop the program, read the log, run it in reverse mode, etc. If you use the logfile feature of ddrescue, the data is rescued very efficiently (only the needed blocks are read).

    • 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. I would give 9/10. Guest • Mar 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
