What about 'ddrescue --timeout=0'?

        Thanks, that seems to be working on my initial tests.

I really didn't design --timeout for a value of 0, so it is possible that ddrescue exits just after starting if the clock changes during the initialization. I'll soon release version 1.19-pre1 with this race fixed.

        The "waitfordevice" tool also lets you put in a drive
        signature / serial test to make sure you've got the same drive
        again, ie;  ./waitfordevice -v -d /dev/sde -s ST9750420AS

Interesting. I'll take a look at it.

Best regards,
