What a wonderful tool!  Thank you!

I'm chugging through a 12GB partition using block size of 512, and it's taking a long time.

I wonder, are you doing a binary search to narrow down where the errors are, finally stopping when you've subdivided to the hard block size, or are you pushing ahead with 512-byte reads until you hit a read that doesn't return -1?

Before I found ddrescue, I wasted 2 days fixing dd to work better with disk recovery.
