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 '--continue-on-errno' has been added.

* If ddrescue exits because of a fatal read error, it now prints the value of the variable 'errno' so that it can be used as argument to '--continue-on-errno'.

* When using '--ask' and '--verbose', print rescue options before asking user.

* Option '--log-reads' now records the value of errno if different from EIO. (The four changes above suggested by Christian Franke).

* The effect of option '-O, --reopen-on-error' has been extended to all phases.

* It has been documented in the manual that '--reopen-on-error' may be needed when using '--continue-on-errno'.
