Rescue progress

Post by Danijel »

I am trying to clone external drive. I don't even know what happened to the drive, it just turned raw and partition lost. It will take 14 days and i am getting a lot of read errors. I wanted to ask you is it worth it to wait that long?

It's up to you, it very much depends on what data is on the drive and how much it's worth to you. If you have a recent backup, I'd personally just go with that instead.

You could try the "Read backwards" option to see if it's faster that way, or if the end of the drive is in better condition. As long as you use the same mapfile, you'll be fine. Also, keeping the drive nice and cool might help it a little bit, if it feels hot.
