10.4: Recover a dead hard drive using GNU ddrescue
Authored by: arbee on Jan 30, '09 03:07:15AM

Your article has created a glimpse of hope. I have problem booting from the hard drive so I boot from the Mac OS X 10.4 DVD. Disk utility cannot fix the disk. How to run ddrescue on it if it does not boot. Thanks for any help and advice.
One last thing, am not too command line savvy. any additional help will be appreciated

10.4: Recover a dead hard drive using GNU ddrescue

An easy way to get ddrescue installed is to install Mac Ports (http://www.macports.org). You can then open a terminal window, type "sudo port install ddrescue", and the port will install. Once that's done, you can type "sudo ddrescue" to run the program, or "sudo man ddrescue" for instructions.
