Hi Tansu!

You could call ddrescue with the parameter --max-size=1T (or whatever the precise value is) to limit it to the first 1 TB.

What surprises me is that your drive is recognized as bigger than it should be. I've heard of manufacturers limiting the size via firmware settings for sales reasons, but limiting it to half the capacity? Anyway, I'd recommend you find out why the reported capacity is twice as high as it should be and more importantly that the data you copy using ddrescue is actually valid.

Bye, Burkart
