I'm recovering a damaged drive.
The first 2 passes are done, but I want to rescue more data, while being able to browse the already closed partition image, while it is being filled up with new data by ddrescue.
I've mounted the image file:
mkdir sda3.img mount -o loop,ro /media/sdc3/sda3.img sda3.img
I've started another ddrescue session:
ddrescue -d -r3 /dev/sda3 sda3.img sda3.logfile
So far so good, I can browse the image mounted through a loop device, and ddrescue is writing to the image, without reporting output errors:
GNU ddrescue 1.17 Press Ctrl-C to interrupt Initial status (read from logfile) rescued: 330315 MB, errsize: 12565 MB, errors: 500 Current status rescued: 332072 MB, errsize: 10809 MB, current rate: 5406 kB/s ipos: 76576 MB, errors: 500, average rate: 2150 kB/s opos: 76576 MB, time since last successful read: 0 s Retrying bad sectors... Retry 1
Can this possibly cause any data loss or other problems?
