I have attempted to rescue a drive which seems to have corruptions using the following commands:
ddrescue --no-split /dev/hda1 imagefile logfile ddrescue --direct --retry-passes=3 /dev/hda1 imagefile logfile ddrescue --direct --retrim --retry-passes=3 /dev/hda1 imagefile logfile
This leaves me with an errsize of 90000 B. How do I extract the remaining 90000 B?
I have attempted to re-run the 2nd and 3rd commands, and the errsize reduces each time by around 100 B. It will take forever if I try the re-run approach. Is there a different variation of the commands I could try which might speed it up?
Other possible relevant details:
ddrescue -v (1.19) uname -r (4.4.0-64-generic)
How do I speed up the time it is taking to reduce the errsize, as re-running the above commands is reducing the errsize excruciatingly slowly?
