To the Ddrescue

Posted by on Thu, Feb 29, 2024

Another year another ddrescue to rescue some data from an broken hard-disk.

As usual, people do not backup their stuff. Of course not, because most of the users do not even know what a backup is.

And so it happened in my secondary job, where I help a small company with IT stuff, that one of the disks at a kindergarden location broke down. Only valid way to rescue data was running ddrescue over multiple days to try to save as much as possible. Actually only 1.2GB was lost and as it seems just data from Windows itself, not actual user data. But well, that the users have to tell me then if some of the pictures or movies saved on the disk are broken.

ddrescue came for the data rescue. :)
