Getting error that prevents further recovery (Write error: permission denied)

Post by underfootman »

Hello. I recently bought ddrescue-gui and have been using it for a couple of days.
I suddenly got this error at 1148.0 GB.
I am running this application on Windows.
I am unfamiliar with Linux. I have never used Linux or Linux on Windows before using this application.

Hello,

I updated the bundle yesterday, could you see if the error is fixed now please?

You can download again from the link in the email to get the new version.

After I posted the initial question, I installed ubuntu on a bootable USB and downloaded DDRescue-GUI from your repository.
The error did not show up on Linux, and I never encountered it there. The program continued to recover data as normal.
If I tried to run DDRescue-GUI on Windows, after I had recovered more data using the Linux version, I continued to encounter the initial error.
I have since recovered essentially all the data that was important from my HDD. I want to say thank you for your program and instructions.
I appreciate the fixes you have made, but unfortunately I will not be able to test them. Nonetheless, I want to also thank you for the fixes you made!
