GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors.

Ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue mapfiles, shows mapfile contents, converts mapfiles to/from other formats, compares mapfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a mapfile if the rescue is done.

Changes in this version:

* The new option '--delay-slow' has been added. It sets the initial delay before ddrescue starts checking for slow reads.

* The new option '--pause-on-error' has been added. It makes (or simulates) a pause after each read error.

  * The option '--pause' has been renamed to '--pause-on-pass'.

  * The option '-K, --skip-size' now accepts sizes up to 1 EiB.

* Options '--ask' and '-vv' now always show file size, even if model and serial number are also shown.

  * The tried size is now shown in the initial status.
