dd_rhelp / dd_rescue
 
Hello,

I have been running dd_rhelp for about 3 days now on a 16 GB partition and it is still running. Does dd_rhelp continue indefinitely or is there a point at which the program will stop running or can I stop it?

From what I have learned (if some one can be so kind as to confirm this) I now have about a 16 GB image of the drive which I should be able to mount using the mount command in a loop back mode. Some research has stated that I need to run fsck on this image file, is this true and how would I run it if it was originally a reiser file system? After the image has been mounted I should be able to view it as though it was a standard linux partition and copy files to another drive?

Again if some one could please confirm the above comments with some details that would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Dan

make sure you reiserfs tools install, and perform an fsck on the image. It may be that you have to have the disk on media for fsck to work, but I can neither confirm, nor deny, these allegations:D

Also, dd_rescue isn't any better than dd in most aspects, if you are a fan of wasting time, just try a "dd conv=noerror", I believe..... Sorry, i'm windows machine right now
