dd_rescue - Fault tolerant "dd" utility for rescuing data from bad media

Website: http://www.garloff.de/kurt/linux/ddrescue/
License: GPL+
Description:
ddrescue is a utility similar to the system utility "dd" which copies
data from a file or block device to another. ddrescue 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.

This package includes dd_rhelp, a wrapper script facilitating data
recovery.

Packages

dd_rescue-1.40-1.fc16.x86_64 [79 KiB] Changelog by Lawrence R. Rogers (2013-08-08):
* Release 1.40-1
	It brings copying of extended attributes (with -p/--preserve).	It doubles the default soft
	block size for buffered IO, but brings sparse write optimization for half-empty blocks.
	It also optimizes copying by using the first write to get rid off odd file offsets.  It
	also adds a lot more test cases to make check.
