how to install hddsuperclone on mint?

Good catch, I would not have known that. I did not know there was a way to install a program for specifically AMD or Intel. Cloning the whole drive is better than trying to do it by partition, that way you don't have to worry about something being at a different offset. And as long as the destinatio...

how to install hddsuperclone on mint?

The short answer is that the last time someone had an issue with libusb, it was something with their OS installation. I just tried to use the latest Mint 20 live iso, but it kept locking up the system when opening Firefox to download, and I have not yet tested it with a manual file transfer. Maybe t...

how to install hddsuperclone on mint?

1) A quick web (Google) search for "how to install rpm file on linux mint" returns results that Mint is Debian based, so you need the deb file, not the rpm. 2) A quick search for "how to install software on linux mint" returns results with instructions on how to install deb files...

Drive Will Not Mount on Linux, Windows Can't See it.

Before I go any farther with possible DIY options, I would like confirmation from the OP that professional data recovery is not an option on the table. @abrogard, is the data worth spending a few hundred dollars or more for recovery? Because once you go down the DIY road without success, it could ma...

Drive Will Not Mount on Linux, Windows Can't See it.

16310 Not if it has a locked PCB which I strongly suspect this model does. I am not talking about fixing the slow responding issue. I am talking about possible data recovery while still dealing with the slow responding issue. If the drive reads okay but has to wait for every read, with the right so...

Drive Will Not Mount on Linux, Windows Can't See it.

16307 There's a good chance that what you are experiencing is a firmware malfunction common to nearly all WD drives. Or possibly you have a weak/failed read/write head. If the heads were badly failed though it'd probably be audibly clicking when powered on though. Are you referring to the "slo...

HDDSuperClone

A new version of HDDSuperClone is available. The biggest change is that I have added some diagnostic information to the analyze results to help understand what may be wrong with the drive. It gives a percentage chance of a slow responding issue, partial access issue, and bad or weak head. A video of...

HDDSuperClone

Well, if you figure out what is needed to be installed for it to work, let me know so I can include it. Otherwise I don't know because I don't have any HFS+ to test with.

HDDSuperClone

Try the following command and post back if it works or not (the computer will need internet connection). If it does then I will add this to the next HDDLiveCD release.
sudo apt-get install hfsprogs -y
