Heh heh, I wonder how long that ddrescue cloning will take to finish. The GUI shows just over an hour remaining (it is using the average rate for the whole recovery). Ddrescue indicates 5 hours 21 days, not sure how that is calculated these days. I bet it will be at least 10+ days. Well it is what ...

MRT Pros and Cons

I do plan to do more reviews, particularly of their take on DE. I just keep hoping that an update will roll through some improvements...but, it seems that I will be waiting forever. It is a little slower here right now, thanks to Canada Post rotating strikes over the past few weeks. Maybe I should ...

As stated in an earlier post, make sure you try version 2.1.6 on the drive(s) that it did not work on previously. It has a couple fixes. I would like to know if one of them resolved the issue. Worked with another 2tb https://imgur.com/a/umsqtIu I'll do that once I'll finish the clone Forgot to ment...

12895 So I guess this confirms the suspicions that the GUI version of ddrescue is not as good as the command line version. Glad I never switched to the GUI one. Well, yes and no. Upon even further inspection, the ddresuce 1.23 terminal output is actually from the GUI program. So it can show the ter...

So I guess this confirms the suspicions that the GUI version of ddrescue is not as good as the command line version. Glad I never switched to the GUI one. You have pro tools why using cheap stuff? Do not underestimate the GUI version it never let down, always did great job. Great for dummies like m...

So far 1.7 tb pass with zero skips and errors It should be finished soon I'll let you know if it worked https://imgur....

That output shows it is not because of the sector size. It it recognized as having 512 byte logical and physical sector size to the OS. So that would not be the cause of hddsuperclone reporting the size changed. With that being the case, it goes back to questioning the data recovered. Hopefully it ...

Here is a command you can use to show what sector size the kernel sees from the drive. You should be able to run this command from a new terminal window while ddrescue is running, all it does is list the block devices. lsblk -d -b -o NAME,SIZE,LOG-SEC,PHY-SEC,MODEL Maximus thanks for your reply Wel...

Common Terminal Response - Seagate F3 Arch

12864 If you have some knowledge in electronic I think you’ll be doing well even with SSD When I say good knowledge I mean at least 1 year school which is low level like mine. It’s really basic but it’ll help you a lot I've got basic soldering skills and whatnot. I was even an electrician for 10 ye...
