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.

GNU Ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue logfiles, shows logfile contents, converts logfiles to/from other formats, compares logfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a logfile if the rescue is done.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html.

This version is also available in lzip format. If your distro doesn't yet distribute the lzip program, you can download it from http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip.html

Changes in this version:

  * The new option "-I, --verify-input-size" has been added.

  * The new option "-x, --extend-outfile" has been added.

* Ddrescue now verifies that infile, outfile and logfile are all different.

  * Non-tried blocks are now read aligned to cluster-size sectors.

  * The "split or skip" algorithm of the split pass has been improved.

* The default block size for ddrescuelog has been changed to 512, the value used by ddrescue.
