DDRescue-GUI Museum

Here you can download older versions of DDRescue-GUI.

These versions can be downloaded for educational purposes and are useful if you're trying to run one of my programs on an operating system that I no longer support, such as Ubuntu 12.10.

Note: Some of these downloads are .tar.gz packages instead of installable packages. I don't have .deb packages for some of the older versions, so I just uploaded what I have.

Checksums

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.

DDRescue-GUI v2.1.0

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 https://www.hamishmb.com/blog.

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 https://www.hamishmb.com/html/downloads.php?program_name=getdevinfo or https://launchpad.net/getdevinfo/ 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 https://launchpad.net/~hamishmb/+archive/ubuntu/myppa).

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

UPDATE 22/7/2020: This package has been confirmed to work with the macOS 11 beta with a few minor issues.

DDRescue-GUI v1.7.1

UPDATE 3/1/2018: A security fix has been issued for this package. Only people who have been running the program on Wayland have been affected. After the program was shut, GUI applications could continue to be run as root, because the workaround wasn't being disabled properly until a reboot had occurred. See my corresponding blog post at http://hamishmb.altervista.org/blog for all the details.

UPDATE 15/11/2017: Confirmed working on Fedora 27.

UPDATE 14/9/2017: The packages are confirmed working with Ubuntu 17.10 and macOS 10.13 beta. I can't test with Fedora 27 yet, but I'll keep you posted.

UPDATE 12/7/2017: The Fedora packages have been confirmed to work with Fedora 26 :)

This release fixes a bug when running with ddrescue v1.22. Other than that, it is identical to v1.7.

For all the details about v1.7.1, see my blog post at http://hamishmb.altervista.org/blog.

You can also download this program from my website at http://www.hamishmb.altervista.org/html/Downloads/ddrescue-gui.php.

I hope you enjoy using this program, and if so please check out my other projects, WxFixBoot, Stroodlr, and Wine Autostart.

DDRescue-GUI v1.5.1

This release fixes a bug (not security related) in the authentication dialog in v1.5, but other than that it is identical.
The release info for v1.5 is as follows:

This is the latest release of DDRescue-GUI, and it's even more stable than the last one!

A lot of the changes in this release are to improve stability and to fix bugs, but there are also some new features, such as the output box behaving like a terminal, the settings windows remembering settings if you check back later, and a ton of improvements for Mac users :)

For more details, see my blog post at http://hamishmb.altervista.org/blog

As always, thanks to everyone who's helped make this program better by reporting bugs, asking questions and giving me general feedback! :)

DDRescue-GUI v1.5~rc1

This is the first release candidate for DDRescue-GUI v1.5, and it has a lot of fixes and improvements over v1.5~pre1 and v1.4!

Since v1.5~pre1, the GUI works better and uses much less CPU power on OS X, including the output box especially, the settings window now remembers settings if you check back, direct disk access is enabled by default, the elapsed time counter now works better, and a complete recovery is detected more reliably on OS X. See the changelog for more details.

If all goes to plan, this will be the same as the stable release.

DDRescue-GUI v1.5~pre1

This is the first development version of v1.5, which has loads of little improvements over v1.4 but needs some work to improve the efficiency of the backend, especially on OS X, where for some reason CPU usage is high and there is a big delay before the first GUI update (fixed for 1.5~pre2, memory leak on OS X too! (also fixed)), and some testing, but this is nonetheless helpful for checking that stuff is working properly :)

Note: This is NOT stable software! This is being released merely for testing by me and any others who wish to help, preferably in a virtual machine, and for informational purposes, so please don't use this on any production system, because it has the potential to do serious damage to your system! Having said that, I think it's reasonably stable, but I haven't yet tested it thoroughly.

DDRescue-GUI v1.4

This new version is now finally ready! I said the last version was the best I'd ever released, but this is even better!

The whole GUI has been redesigned from the ground up, and it's now much faster, sleeker and smoother, as well as more intuitive and helpful to the user.

On OS X in particular, there are many, many improvements over the last stable version, including new bundled python (v2.7.10), and wxpython (v3.0.2, running on Cocoa), new bundled ddrescue (v1.19) disk image mounting support and stability improvements.

There are a lot of improvements for Linux as well, especially for efficiency: the new GUI displays much more helpful information to the user during recovery, but even when all of it is visible, it remains as efficient as the last version, as well as starting more quickly.

There are several improvements for both Linux and OS X as well, including a nice new authentication dialog and direct disk access (most Linux distros, and OS X).

If you're interested, you can see the full list of changes in the changelog below.

UPDATE 15/8/2015: A package has now been added for Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf).

UPDATE 2/10/2015: The OS X package has now been tested to work with El Capitan (10.11), even with System Integrity Protection enabled, which is good news!

UPDATE 27/10/2015: This has now been tested to work with the stable version of Ubuntu 15.10.

I hope you enjoy using this program, and you can check out my other packages at www.launchpad.net/~hamishmb/+related-projects

DDRescue-GUI v1.4~rc2

This is the second and final release candidate for DDRescue-GUI 1.4! There have been further performance tweaks and efficiency improvements over v1.4~rc1, as well as many bug fixes and new features.

The code can now be considered complete, and reasonably stable; now I just need to test everything again thoroughly, but I don't think there will be any issues.

If all goes to plan, this will be exactly the same as the stable version, except with a different version number.

Here's a brief summary of the major changes:

The backend has now been switched to the new model based on direct Inter-Process Communication,
A lot of the code has been revised and improved (both in terms of reliability and speed),
The new authentication dialog has been finished and semi-tested,
Disk image (and device) mounting is now fully supported and semi-tested on OS X, and improved on Linux,
A lot of bugs present when run on wxPython > 2.8.11.1 have been fixed (this affects Mac OS X, Ubuntu 14.10 and 15.04),
Elapsed time is now viewable on the Main Window,
Direct disk access is now available during a recovery (both OS X and Linux),
Python and wxPython have both been upgraded in the OS X bundle (to v2.7.10 and v3.0.2.0 respectively),
and various other bugs on Mac OS X have been fixed.
Note: This is NOT stable software! This is being released merely for testing by me and any others who wish to help, preferably in a virtual machine, and for informational purposes, so please don't use this on any production system, because it has the potential to do serious damage to your system! Having said that, I think it's very stable, and complete, but I haven't yet tested it thoroughly.

Note: The file names are wrong because of multiple build attempts because of a packaging problem.

DDRescue-GUI v1.4~rc1

This is the first release candidate for DDRescue-GUI 1.4! It features a completely redesigned GUI, thanks to Minnie McIntyre-Bhatty, and a better device detection system, that displays much more helpful information.

It also offers many, many bugfixes over 1.3, including some UI tweaks that make it easier to use, improvements in speed and efficiency, and fewer dependencies.

The backend hasn't been touched yet, at all, but all the modifications have been planned and will be available for testing in the next release candidate, which may perhaps be ready around late May, at a guess.

There isn't a Mac version for this as I don't currently have access to a Mac, but I tested it at various points during development, so it should be fine. There will be a Mac version for 1.4~rc2.

This version has now been released, and it should be a good precursor for the next release candidate, which should shortly thereafter become stable.

Note: This is NOT stable software! This is being released merely for testing by me and any others who wish to help, preferably in a virtual machine, and for informational purposes, so please don't use this on any production system, because it has the potential to do serious damage to your system! Having said that, I consider it incomplete, but reasonably stable, but it hasn't gone through proper testing yet.

DDRescue-GUI v1.3

This is, by far and away, the best version of DDRescue-GUI I've ever released! It has even better error detection, fixes formatting issues on some systems (text appears in wrong place during recovery), works on Apple's OS X(R) 10.6 or newer, and include many other fixes, such as a remaining time feature that works when the average speed is being measured in bps, a new device information dialog, and include a fix with the terminal output option. It also can now restart after a recovery, and can (on Linux) mount the finished image (even if it has partitions) for you!

Note: Please only use the failsafe OS X option if the normal option won't work correctly, as it has more insecure permissions, possibly allowing tampering via other programs.

UPDATE: A package is now available for Ubuntu 14.10, and it also now works with ddrescue 1.18 -- download the source and follow the instructions inside.

UPDATE 9/2/2015: The packages for the obsolete Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.10 releases have been removed as they are using unnecessary space on Launchpad's servers.

UPDATE 17/2/2015: I have released updated packages for Ubuntu 14.10 and 15.04 because of changes in the version of wxpython ubuntu provides.

UPDATE 24/3/2015: I've now checked that this version also works with OS X Yosemite (10.10), and it's fine.

UPDATE 15/4/2015: I've fixed a bug for the OS X version that can prevent ddrescue from starting, and the new file is now available here. Please use this version instead.

I hope you enjoy using this program, and you can check out my other packages at www.launchpad.net/~hamishmb/+related-projects

DDRescue-GUI v1.1

This release fixes several important issues with the last version. Please note, If running on a different distribution, the ddrescue versions matter, because they each have different features. Ubuntu packages are available in the PPA, and are compatible with Linux Mint, provided you install the correct version for your codebase, and the parted magic download installs files into a different directory, so it's not recommended in most cases. Note: the raring version also works with Linux Mint 15.

DDRescue-GUI v1.0

The first stable release of DDRescue-GUI! It doesn't support Lucid as 10.04 is EOL and hasn't got some of the features that are required. DDRescue-GUI aims to provide a good replacement for using the commandline for ddrescue for new linux users, and linux administrators and developers! It's designed to be as easy to use as possible. *** This version had fatal problems preventing it from working ***

DDRescue-GUI v0.9

This is the first and is to be the only development release of DDRescue-GUI. It is a preview of the style for the GUI, containing no functionality, and it is likely to change slightly before the stable release. The installer (DEB) packages for Ubuntu are available in my ppa.
