dd_rescure, is an an advanced evolution of dd, a command line program that has been ported only for UNIX/Linux. The program uses a complex series of flags to allow the user to image or write data from and to raw image files.

Sample usage

Here is a common dd_rescue command:

UNIX/Linux

$ dd_rescue /dev/hda myfile.img

Cautions
