Hello Richard,

Firstly, thank you for this fine tool.

You are welcome. :-)

I use it on almost all recoveries, as I never know whether the drive is at fault or not when I get a non-working computer which I am asked to revive.

Good idea!

There is one peculiarity I have noticed, however: ddrescue is starting fast and subsequently slowing down during the copy process.
The usb disk is ntfs formatted (because I need it also to be accessible in Windows), so all data is going through the mount.ntfs-3g driver.

Some users have already reported this when writing to an ntfs partition. It seems to be a problem with the ntfs-3g driver or format. See for example the following message:

"NTFS-3g eating 100%. Solved by switching to ext3"

Best regards,
