Disks – Not so S.M.A.R.T. After All? — 1 Comment

  1. Hi, the way you describe your problem sounds like you don’t know ddrescue: https://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/
    Different Linux distros sometimes use variations of the name, like dd-rescue, dd_rescue etc. Essentially they all do the same thing: read the readable parts of the medium first, keep a map of what has been recovered already, then use this map to try to recover the rest during the next pass(es).
