Re: [Bug-ddrescue] Option to stop copy at first error

If ddrescue queries disk size all the time to the Kernel, once the
device is unreadable/unreachable the Kernel cannot report true
information from that disk.

I'm working now on a solution to use simple dd with a script that
records a pointer of last sector read from source disk while that disk
is readable.
