Recover a dead hard drive using dd
Authored by: pjx on Dec 01, '09 07:32:01PM

My Command was almost correct. I had to rewrite the of section. The dev and disk location don't belong there. The dev in the if section is copy the device. The of section is a guide to where. If you cannot cd there you cannot copy to there.

The corrected version that worked for me.

dd bs=512 if=/dev/disk1 of=/volumes/ExpansionD/foo2.dmg conv=noerror,sync

Just sharing how I got it working.
