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-1.99.8-1.fc25.i686 [390 KiB] Changelog by Lawrence R. Rogers (2017-12-03):
* Release 1.99.8-1
	Version 1.99.8 brings compatibility with OpenSSL-1.1.
	Trouble was that the EVP interface has significantly changed.
	Thanks got to Marcus Meissner for contributing the patch.
	I used the opportunity to structure the AES plugins a bit better; also the test_aes program now uses CPU detection and can thus be used in the check target.
dd_rescue-1.99.5-1.fc25.i686 [386 KiB] Changelog by Lawrence R. Rogers (2016-12-29):
* Release 1.99.5-1
	Version 1.99.5 (2016-12-29)
	  Version 1.99.5 has two compiler fixes and a better estimation (and thus better progress reporting) of the transfer length.
	  It also has a new ratecontrol feature, allowing to throttle the speed with which data gets copied.

	Version 1.99.4 (2016-08-25)
	  Version 1.99.4 has a couple of fixes on top of 1.99: A memory corruption was resolved when using fmt_int() improperly,
	   which was the case when a list of bad blocks was written out with -b. Thanks to Marc Thomas for reporting and debugging.
	  A segfault with the graph with reverse direction copies was also fixed as well as improved flexibility to compile ddr_crypt
	   plugin with incomplete support for new insns.
dd_rescue-1.99-1.fc25.i686 [379 KiB] Changelog by Lawrence R. Rogers (2015-09-09):
* Release 1.99-1
	Version 1.99 brings updates to the ddr_crypt plugin: It adds hardware
	acceleration for ARMv8 CPUs/SOCs (even if in 32bit mode) -- this is a 10x
	speedup on AES en/decryption operations. (An Cortex-A57 at 2.1GHz (Exy7420)
	does ~1GB/s with AES128-CTR.) The ddr_crypt plugin xattr support has been
	extended and it has an option to process openSSL compatible Salted__ files. A
	bug in CTR initialization has been fixed. The main program sees improved write
	error retry logic and better fault injection logic (support for ranges, using
	absolute positions). There are now more variants of Android binaries.
