Here’s a PDF of my dramatized account of rescuing Andy Clift’s comic creation, “Bertie Bear”, from a corrupted hard drive, using the ddrescue utility on a Linux box.
This extract originally appeared in Linux Voice issue #13, and is under a Creative Commons BY-SA license. The entire issue (and others) can be found here, but note that the magazine is no longer trading (subsumed into Linux Magazine, where our Elvie comic strip still appears as part of the Linux Voice section). As a result, their website doesn’t see much maintenance – which is a round-about way of saying that the HTTPS certificate is self-signed, so your browser will likely complain about it. Proceed at your own risk.
