DDRescue-GUI v2.1.1

Despite the minor new version number, this release packs quite a lot of changes:

- Dropped support and workarounds for Python 2.
- Compatible with wxPython 4.1.x.
- Much smaller macOS bundle size.

See the blog post at for all the details.

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 3/9/2020: This package has been confirmed to work with the Ubuntu 20.10 development builds, but has issues when mounting the output file. A build will be provided in the PPA when this is fixed.

UPDATE 4/9/2020: This package has been confirmed to work with the Fedora 33 development builds.

Cheers and thanks for a must have utility.


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.

Older Versions?

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.
