How To Install DDRescue-GUI 1.3 On Ubuntu 14.04

GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors.

Ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue logfiles, shows logfile contents, converts logfiles to/from other formats, compares logfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a logfile if the rescue is done. Ddrescuelog operations can be restricted to one or several parts of the logfile if the domain setting options are used.

The latest version is 1.3

More information can be found at the below Links.

To install just run the following Commands via your systems Terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hamishmb/myppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install ddrescue-gui
