Package dd_rescue

Fault tolerant "dd" utility for rescuing data from bad media

The dd_rescue is a utility similar to the system utility "dd" which copies
data from a file or block device to another. The dd_rescue does however
not abort on errors in the input file. This makes it suitable for
rescuing data from media with errors, e.g. a disk with bad sectors.

This package includes dd_rhelp wrapper script facilitating data
recovery. It is trying to make it so simple to recover as:
dd_rhelp source target

Please note Fedora ships also GNU ddrescue, which probably gives
faster and more reliable results rescuing whole disks.
But still there might be some niche pattern of bad sectors,
which might get better covered by dd_rescue and both tools
might be used with sub-sequent runs cooperatively on the same disk image.
