I am a ... well let's say advanced user of LINUX and have now 10 happy years of experience with DEBIAN starting from version 5 Sid until the recent 8.2 Jessie.
Before that done 6 years of system administration including a SCO UNIX Server and a couple of Windows Servers and dozens of workstations. The largest system was nearly 100 PC's, devices etc. at 3 locations with LAN and VPN's, Firewall and Phone via landline and VoIP.

I like to experiment and then share the experience. With sharing I may post silly stuff and get corrected - the way to learn something from anybody.

Have fun, insight and maybe share your knowledge with me.

1. Install ddrescue (gddrescue)
2. How it works - Manuals
3. Figure out your devices and prepare ddrescue
4. Use it on a damaged CD-ROM (data loss due bad sectors)
5. Recover as much data from data CD-ROM as possible
