Hello David.

Nice image. Maybe ddrescue could trim drives like this more efficiently, or even try to predict the size of the next bad area. Ddrescue tends to become more intelligent after every interesting report sent to this list. :-)

Could you send me the (compressed) logfile? I'll try to improve the trimming algorithm with it. Thanks.

So - if somebody knows anything I can do to speed this up, I would be
very greatful for suggestions!

The size of each error seems to be large (about 10MB), so the '--try-again' option may read all those non-trimmed blocks fast.

Good luck and best regards,
