10.4: Recover a dead hard drive using GNU ddrescue
Authored by: derrickbass on Jul 29, '05 03:52:16AM

I'm a little confused by exactly why the disk image is being used. If you already have a blank disk you are going to use for a rescue volume, you can just use ddrescue straight onto that disk and then use Disk Warrior to fix any damage.

I should also point out that if you don't have a rescue volume, you can use Disk Warrior (or pretty much any other disk repair program) to repair an image directly. If the image won't mount, go to the the command line and type
[code]
hdiutil attach -nomount image.dmg
[/code]
Then launch DiskWarrior. If the disk image is not too badly damaged it should see it and be able to repair it.
