Trying to rescue a ~28Mb file from a damaged CDR. I'm trying
dd if=/mnt/cdrom/file of=first.out
once I get an I/O error I get a count of blocks read by dd so I do it
dd if=/mnt/cdrom/file of=seconf.out skip=<blocks already read>+1
and so on until I run out of blocks to read. I'll then use a single block
fragment to pad out to the original size and do a
cat first.out block-fragment second.out block-fragment third.out ...... > recovered-file
Will this work? Is there a better way?
