I have a 500GB external HDD that I need to rescue the contents of. Unfortunately I only have two 400GB partitions to save the contents to. Can I split the disk image as:
~$ cd /mnt/part1/Recovery/ /mnt/part1/Recovery/$ ddrescue -f -n -i0 -s250...00 /dev/disk disk.part1.ddraw disk.part1.log /mnt/part1/Recovery/$ cd /mnt/part2/Recovery/ /mnt/part2/Recovery/$ ddrescue -f -n -i250...00 /dev/disk disk.part2.ddraw disk.part2.log
(values of numbers are missing a few zeros for convenience). That is, can I just use the
-s flags to split the disk image into two parts manually?
Secondly, is there a way I can mount the two parts of the image as one?
