Question about PIO mode

Finally I managed to recover the rest of my disk on my holidays. Everything but the badblocks (the disk was in a 'good' shape after all). I read the documentation of HDDSuperClone and tried it. I had some problems with my BIOS (a bit old) and my SATA disk couldn't work as IDE but because there was o...

Question about PIO mode

Even the free version of HDDSuperClone will stop when the drive goes offline, which sounds like what you are describing here. Ddrescue can't detect that which is why it starts marking sectors as bad, when in reality it is just because the drive is no longer responding. HDDSuperClone can detect when...

Question about PIO mode

I believe that HDDSuperclone can do PIO mode, but not sure. Ask him here: https://www.data-medics.com/forum/hddsuperclone-t1262.html I'm more interested in ddrescue or much better to enable it at SO level not at software level but is interesting to know HDDSuperclone can do that... I'll look into i...

In order to be recognized as PIO device in a Linux environment and then try to do the imaging process with a specific software like ddrescue or anything similar.... The drives the...

How to Clone a Hard Drive With Bad Sectors Using ddrescue

I would start the first pas by just using the -f trigger. You really don't need any others. The first pass is always a good idea, because you avoid the scrapping face over the badblocks, so that pass you rescue everything you can and then you do another one over the same image file srapping the bad...
