-T option ddrescue v1.8
2010-09-17 04:12:49 GMT
I am wondering if there is another option in ddrescue v1.8 similar to the -T (--try-again) available in ddrescue v1.13? I have run into a problem straight out of the manual (v1.13) where my 750GB drive failed 8GB into the rescue using the -n option on the first pass, however ddrescue continued to write the logfile straight through to the end as errors.
I've restarted the computer, and now running with the -n option finishes without instantatniously. Running with the -r3 option sees everything as errors, and is running very slowly. The drive is also peroidically failing,(dissapearing from /dev), so I'd like to be able to ignore the previous error marks for the sectors in the logfile, and resum copying with the -n option on restart.
From the V1.13 manual:
Example 7: While rescuing the whole drive /dev/hda to /dev/hdb, /dev/hda stops responding and disappears from /dev. ddrescue -f -n /dev/hda /dev/hdb logfile <-- /dev/hda fails here (restart /dev/hda or reboot computer as many times as needed) ddrescue -f -n -T /dev/hda /dev/hdb logfile ddrescue -d -f -r3 /dev/hda /dev/hdb logfile
I am running v1.8 because I'm using a FC11 live USB stick and installed it via the fedora yum repository.
This i cant compile v1.13 because there is no gcc compiler in this env.
Is it possible to manually edit the logfile.
As well, if i do have to upgrade to v1.13, can i use the same logfile, and keep my current output?
