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:

* Domain mapfiles may now contain unordered and overlapping blocks when '-L, --loose-domain' is specified as long as no block overlaps with other block of different status. (1.26-pre1 just allowed unordered blocks). (Suggested by Gábor Katona and Shaya Potter).

* In case of error in a numerical argument to a command line option, ddrescue now shows the name of the option and the range of valid values.

  * Empty phases are now completely skipped.

Antonio Diaz, GNU ddrescue author and maintainer.
