I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ddrescue 1.14.

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:
d6f6cc63df9ad352bc6e43b65c975af5  ddrescue-1.14.tar.gz
122d628c884a170659ac4c227cc484bc  ddrescue-1.14.tar.lz

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

Changes in version 1.14:

* The new option "-R, --reverse", which reverses direction of copy operations, has been added.

* The new option "-E, --max-error-rate", which stops ddrescue when the error size grows too fast (in Bytes/s), has been added.

* The syntax of option "--max-errors" has been extended to specify new errors (--max-errors=+N).

  * The short name of option "--retrim" has been changed to "-M".

  * A spurious warning about "preallocation not available" has been fixed.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden

If you are packaging ddrescue for a distribution, please, try to use the lzipped source tarball, as this can improve the support for the lzip format in packaging systems[1][2]. Thanks.

Antonio Diaz, GNU ddrescue author and maintainer.
