3Tb HDD is corrupt. I tried using ddrescue to create an image and a logfile on another 3TB HDD (only one I had). I got a write error after about 2.7T (actual capacity of the 3TB). Image file and log appear ok.
My question is can I still restore from the image file even though it might be truncated? I'm ok with retrieving 99.9% of my data.
Or should I repeat but write the log to USB, or repeat without log file, is the same size drive still too small?
Thanks in advance,.
