In Linux operating system, myrescue is an utility to
retrieve still-readable information from damaged hard
drive. This Linux Data Recovery tool is similar to the
dd_rescue, however it attempts to quickly get out of
corrupted area to handle undamaged part first. After
extracting data from the undamaged area, the utility
then returns to the damaged area and tries to fix it.
The myrescue utility attempts to copy your hard drive
block-wise to the file and creates a block bitmap
(table) remarking whether the block is successfully
copied, not handled yet or it has errors. The block
bitmap or table can be employed in the successive runs
for concentrating on unresolved blocks.
This Data Recovery Linux utility effectively handles
the read errors, through its special skip way. General
the hard drive surface blemishes cover more than simply
one data block and uninterrupted reading data from the
defected areas may damage the hard drive surface, the
hard drive mechanisms, and read/write heads.
When it occurs, the possibilities of retrieving the
remaining and undamaged data decreased dramatically.
Therefore in the skip mode of myrescue, it attempts to
escape the damaged area quickly by exponentially
incrementing the step size. It marks the skipped blocks
as un-handled in block bitmap table and they may be
retrieved at later stage.
Ultimately, the utility has an advanced option to
multiply attempt for reading data from a data block,
before believing it is damaged.
However, you should bear in mind that the this
utility is not a replacement for third-party data
recovery utilities. When you have a second option, do
not even try to use myrescue, as the tool may cause more
damage to your hard drive.
The myrescue utility is available only for the
situation that you're completely desperate and cannot
afford any professional Linux Recovery utility. If your
data is highly significant for your business, it is
worth to go for professional recovery applications.
