  • dd_rescue-1.32-1.{fc15,fc16,fc17,fc18,el5,el6}.{i686,x86_64}.rpm - Dd_rescue is a utility similar to the system utility dd which copies data from a file or block device to another. dd_rescue. does however not abort on errors in the input file. This makes it suitable for rescuing data from media with errors, e.g. a disk with bad sectors. Here are the changes from the previous distributed version (1.31):
    • 1.32: This version has a new option (-x) to append to the output file and you can specify -Y (multiple times if you wish so) to write the same data to secondary output files.
