I am trying to recover a partition on my broken hard disk with this command:
ddrescue --r3 --force /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb1 logfile
- /dev/sda2 is 207 GB and contains the data I need
- /dev/sdb1 is a 270 GB USB hard disk
Now when doing the math, ddrescue ought to be finished at around 212.992 MB (that's 208 GB) but right now it copied 216.721 MB and it is still running.
Is this the right behavior?
