Compiled version of ddrescue for 10.4
Authored by: aangel on Oct 25, '07 01:37:42PM
To save someone (maybe you) the hassle of compiling ddrescue, I have posted a compiled version here.

It's against 10.4.10. I have not tested it against 10.5 as I don't have a copy yet.

The command I used was: sudo ddrescue -v /dev/disk2s3 /Volumes/TerraLinda/SaveMaxtor.dmg savemaxtor.log

But you will need to run diskutil list to get the correct label for your device (it's not likely to be disk2s3).

It's currently recovered 16GB and counting...

Compiled version of ddrescue for 10.4

Thank you very much for continuing to host this ddrescue binary for Tiger (you probably have forgotten all about it by now). I'm trying to recover a drive with many bad blocks, which seems like it will take days, and the only machine around that's not being used is running Tiger. No development tools installed to compile my own binary, but yours works perfectly. Thanks!

Compiled version of ddrescue for 10.6

The site also has a compiled version (1.16, compiled against Snow Leopard in April 2013). The important thing is that their download links require an account/password to avoid certain bots flagging their site. But, the account is the first line of text in their logo (case matters!) and the password is the second line of text in their logo (see their FAQ for an explanation).
