ddrescue-gui (GUI for ddrescue)
DDRescue-GUI is a program designed to make it easier to use GNU
ddrescue (A Command-Line data recovery tool). It provides a simple
graphical method for using ddrescue. This is designed to be as
user-friendly as possible so users new to Linux can use ddrescue
DDRescue-GUI is a simple GUI written in Python 2 designed to make
the data recovery tool, ddrescue, easier for beginners to use.
It's designed for Linux, and more recently Apple OS X, as
KDiskRescue appears to be abandoned, with the last update in 2006.
DDRescue-GUI is desgined to look native on almost all Desktop
Environments, so whichever one you use, it should look familiar.
DDRescue-GUI uses very few rescources, with the current version
using about 38MB RAM, and <80MHz CPU power so it'll run on almost
any system, and give you the best battery life possible on laptops.
DDRescue-GUI is cross-platform: It's runs on Linux and macOS
(previously known as OS X).
Note that this program uses GNU ddrescue, not the outdated dd_rescue,
and it's available in my package archive for automatic updates at:
