Diskrescue is a tool to verify and recover as much data as possible from failed disks. It reads all sectors of a disk and lets the disk reallocate bad or soon to be bad sectors. While the disk is being read, it can clone the data to a file or a disk as well.
Release Notes: A restore option was added to copy an image to disk. A percentage is now shown to indicate progress when validating an image instead of just sitting there. A crash in verifying a path was fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds a restartable recovery operation. This enables one to be able to automatically restart after, for example, a kernel hang due to a driver reacting badly to a broken disk.
