This is the first new version of DDRescue-GUI in over a year. I have made it worth your wait, and kept busy working on fixes and new features for you. There are a lot of changes, but here are the most notable ones:

All users:
- Improved and more reliable output file mounting.
- Various bug fixes.
- New "open file viewer" button when output file/device is mounted to make it easier to access your data.
- Menu option to mount disks.
- Better time remaining estimates where available.

macOS users:
- There's now a tooltip for the map and output files to help avoid confusion about the overwrite prompt.
- Much more reliable output file mounting.
- APFS mounting support for macOS 10.12 and higher.
- GNU ddrescue updated to 1.25, Python updated to 3.8.2, and wxPython 4.0.7.

Linux users:
- Fixed mounting CD images.
- Added LVM disk mounting support.
- Various other fixes.

For all the details, see the blog post at

Release Notes:
- On macOS, make sure you select forwards mode when specifying a device not found in the disk information.
- GNU ddrescue won't be able to determine the size of the device, so running backwards will not work.

NOTE for Linux users:

GetDevInfo needs to be installed before you can install this - head over to or to download it first.

Ubuntu 16.04 users also need to install wxpython4.0 from my PPA, either by adding the PPA (below), or downloading and manually installing wxpython4.0.

An alternate way to make this easier for Ubuntu users is to add my PPA to your system (see

UPDATE 29/4/2020: This package has been confirmed to work with Fedora 32.

I would very much appreciate you leaving me a review if you like this program. You can do so here.



It's a great little package - I used to use it in Ubuntu. Thanks for putting it out free. It's one of the best.


There is absolutely no obligation, but if you would like to support me, you can donate with the button below. Any amount will be very much appreciated.

The checksums on this page can be used to verify that your file downloaded successfully without corrupting in transit. These can be verified (usually on the command-line) using specific instructions for your operating system as detailed below:

Instructions for Linux (MD5 sums)
Instructions for Linux (SHA256 sums)
Instructions for Mac OS X (both)
Instructions for Windows (MD5 sums)
Instructions for Windows (SHA256 sums)

In each of these cases, you can compare the output of the command to the checksum for the file (in the table, next to each download file).

Digital Signatures

The digital signatures on this page can be used to verify that your file was created by me, and hasn't been tampered with, either on the web server, or during transit to your computer. Checking these is more difficult, so I have decided not to include instructions here because they'd have to be very long to do it justice. Instead, please carry out a search on how to verify GPG signatures if you wish to learn how to do it.

It's a very good idea to verify both the checksum and the signature, but it's not mandatory.
