ddrescue is a utility similar to the system utility "dd" which copies data from a file or block device to another. ddrescue does however not abort on errors in the input file. This makes it suitable for rescuing data from media with errors, e.g. a disk with bad sectors. This package includes dd_rhelp, a wrapper script facilating data recovery.
