Friends: I have 3 brief questions about ddrescue. This is the operation that I want to run:
sudo ddrescue -f -n -v -v -v -v /dev/sdi /dev/sdh RescueHD10.log
For me, the output drive "/dev/sdh", is brand new. Does it have to be formatted the same way as the input (i.e., damaged) drive? (In other words, if the input drive is NTFS, should the output also be formatted NTFS?)
The output drive, "/dev/sdh", has to be mounted, correct?
The "-v" signifies verbose. Does it make a difference if it's "-v -v -v -v" versus "-vvvv"?
Thank you all for your help!!
