I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ddrescue 1.13.

GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool.

The homepage is at

The sources can be downloaded from or from your favorite GNU mirror.

This version is also available in lzip format. If your distro doesn't yet distribute the lzip program, you can download it from

The md5sums are:
0afc4130882a993772385629d1c0a32e  ddrescue-1.13.tar.gz
00cd788fbd6bc5a6205c3199f7557fda  ddrescue-1.13.tar.lz

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending ".sig" to the URL.

Changes in version 1.13:

  * Non-regular output files are no more overwritten by default.

* The option "--force", which forces overwriting of non-regular output files has been added.

* The option "--preallocate", which preallocates space on disc for the output file has been added.

* The command line used is now written to the logfile as information for the user.

  * Even more warnings have been added to the tutorial in the manual.

* Revert to use "long" instead of "time_t" for time variables. Ddrescue only needs counting seconds and "time_t" causes warnings on some systems.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
