Other License: 
Package: dd_rescue - A data recovering tool
System name: ddrescue
Type: GNU

    dd_rescue - A very simple data recovering tool
    Copyright (C) 2004 Antonio Diaz Diaz.

dd_rescue copies data from one file or block device (hard disk, cdrom,
etc) to another, trying hard to rescue data in case of read errors.

The algorithmn of dd_rescue is as follows:
  1) Read the non-damaged part of the disk, skipping the damaged
  2) Try to read the damaged areas, splitting them into smaller pieces
     and reading the non-damaged pieces, until the hardware block size
     is reached.
  3) Try to read the damaged hardware blocks until the specified
     number of retries is reached, or until interrupted by the user.


dd_rescue is written in C++
