    GNU ddrescue vs TestDisk opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    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.
