dd_rescue icondd_rescue 1.40

Allows to copy data from one file or block device to another
The dd_rescue project is specially designed to copy data from one file or block device to another.

It is intended for error recovery. It doesn't abort on errors and doesn't truncate the output file.

dd_rescue uses large block sizes to quicken the copying, but falls back to small blocks upon encountering errors.

What's New in This Release:
  • The -p/--preserve option now also copies extended attributes (including ACLs) if there are any.
  • Many checks and test cases have been added to make check.
  • Half-empty blocks are now detected now in sparse detection.
  • If copying with an odd file offset, the odd-sized write will be done first so that further accesses should be better aligned, which should help with performance (and optionally sparse detection).
