safecopy is a data recovery tool which tries to extract as much data as
possible from a seekable but problematic (i.e., damaged sectors) source like
floppy drives, hard disk partitions, CDs, etc., where other tools like dd
would fail due to I/O errors.

Changelog

2009-09-09 - Pascal Bleser <pascal.bleser@opensuse.org> 1.6
- update to 1.6:
* fixes a bug regarding badblock include file handling
- changes from 1.5:
* now features a benchmark suite, ready to test-run data recovery tools in a controlled environment
* the safecopy main program has been enhanced to be able to read from /dev/raw devices or open files with O_DIRECT if requested
* new command line switches generate debug output and collect statistic information on damaged devices to be used for simulation with the benchmark utility
- changes from 1.4:
* some fixed typos in safecopy documentation, program output, and code
2009-05-21 - Pascal Bleser <pascal.bleser@opensuse.org>
- update to 1.3:
* safecopy has been internally redesigned to improve reliability and predictability of behavior
* blocksize autodetection now also works in combination with low level device access
* blocksizes can now be specified as a percentage of the file size or as multiples of the hardware blocksize, making these options much easier to use
* new option presets provide shortcuts for multi-stage data rescue with minimum commandline typing effort
- changes in 1.2:
* support for low-level I/O on CD and DVD drives has been fixed and enhanced, including correct detection of disk type and sector layout
* the low-level I/O is more intelligent and uses drive resets only when deemed necessary
* this release supports the twaddle I/O syscall on floppy drives
* system integration has been improved by adding a standard conform man page to the documentation
2009-02-11 - Pascal Bleser <guru@unixtech.be> 1.1
