|Description : |
dd_rescue helps when the situation is desperate: your disk has crashed
and you try to copy it over to another one. While standard Unix tools
like cp, cat, and dd will abort on every I/O error, dd_rescue does not.
It optimizes copying by using large blocks as long as no errors occur
and falls back to smaller blocks. It supports reverse direction copying
(to approach a bad spot from the top), sparse copying, preallocating
space, splice zerocopy, and bypassing the kernel pagecache with O_DIRECT.
dd_rescue also has some data protection functionality by (multiply)
overwriting files (or disks) with fast random numbers.
dd_rescue supports plugins; currently a hash, an lzo and a crypt plugin
exist, supporting on the fly hash/HMAC calculation/validation, lzo
de/compression and de/encryption. The lzo plugin is packaged in the
dd_rescue-lzo, the crypt plugin in the dd_rescue-crypt subpackage.
This RPM also bundles a helper script dd_rhelp from Lab Valentin that
intelligently controls dd_rescue to first copy all blocks from areas
that work and only then tries to approach the bad spots from both
