Thanks. But firmware repair tools are not planned. If you knew how complicated that can be, then you would understand how much more you should appreciate the pro tools that are capable of such firmware repairs, and also the pros that can do it without tools.

Thanks, is HDDSuperClone Pro and Sediv Repair tool good enough for all round data recovery without any hardware tools?

HDDSuperClone Pro can turn a computer into a simple hardware imager, in the fact that it can more directly access the disk and use timeouts to work with unstable drives. DMDE can be used through HDDSuperClone to target and extract data without needing to clone the whole disk. The combination could be considered similar to using an older DeepSpar DDI3 with R-Studio. The combo has the ability for data extraction on unstable drives, but it is incapable of working with firmware. It is meant to fill the gap between free software such as ddrescue, and the expensive hardware tools. It is more designed for the beginner, or a computer repair technician, to be able to recover drives that don't need clean room work or have major firmware issues. A recovery pro could also use it for the mild cases to free up their expensive hardware for the hard cases.

I cannot speak for what Sediv can do. From what I have read it would seem more towards repair to refurbish, not so much for data recovery, but I have never used it so I don't know. In any case if the drive requires firmware work, it can sometimes require firmware manipulation withing the recovery tool itself, which would be impossible using two separate tools.

I can vouch for Maximus here. I use HDDSuperClone Pro with DMDE in my computer repair business and have had great success. Given the low price of both pieces of software and the fact you can test things with a two month licence it's ideal for somebody like me.

I would like to introduce HDDSuperClone, a new advanced Linux based hard drive cloning/imaging tool. The current free version is comparable to gnu ddrescue, and should actually be better in some ways. Please visit the home page for more information.

http://www.sdcomputingservice.com/hddsuperclone


Just trying your HDD Super Clone, bought the pro version in July 2020, and feeling this is a good buy. Being able to do some retries on bad sectors and eventually skip when unrecoverable is the best feature of this software.

I have decided to allow a couple more things in the free version. There are other free tools to view SMART data, so that is now allowed. And since most that use HDDSuperClone have no idea how to understand the results, I am now allowing the first level of the analyze feature.

HDDSuperClone Changelog

version 2.2.18 20201004
* Fixed a bug where the license would not install on some systems
* Fixed a bug in the log output that caused an error with HDDSCViewer
* SMART is now allowed in free version
* Added the Extended Analyze button to the main window
* Removed the Extended Analyze option from Advanced settings
* The regular analyze is now allowed in the free version

The user manual page for HDDSuperClone has been disabled by Google:

“This site has been disabled for violations of our Terms of Service. If you feel this disabling was in error, please fill out our appeal form.”

It is a user manual. The only recent change is I added a section for a new feature. WTF Google!!!

I have clicked on the “appeal form” button, which simply submitted an appeal request with no other information (fill out what, all I had was a button). And I had to find out about this from someone visiting the site. There were no emails or messages from Google at all, and if I am in the editing part of the site, it shows up normally with no indication of an issue. So again I say, WTF Google!!!

FYI the user manual is available as a PDF in the download section, for anyone that didn’t already realize that.

I was planning on creating a new website at some time that was not a Google site. I think this is now a sign that it is time to focus more on that. It was a fun ride on the free Google train, but if this is how you treat me, then FU Google! I do think that Google has become a bit too powerful.

They seem to have gone mad from all the power they've got. I suppose the site hasn't been hacked and something dodgy inserted? I would guess you have it locked down too tight for that to happen though..

I don't think my site got hacked. I mean it is a Google site itself. I am hoping it is just some new Google security algorithm gone wrong. One thing that is starting to bother me is the recent trend. First hddoracle.com was flagged as dangerous for having malicious files. Then hddguru itself had issues with image files being flagged as dangerous. Now something on my site has been flagged, although not as dangerous but for violating terms and conditions. Is it something in the Google algorithms, or are they targeting DR sites? The recent trend makes me wonder... :?

Bug report :

If the drive you save the progress file onto runs out of space a 0 byte file is written over the progress file, Even worse it looks like the 0 byte progress file is then automatically copied over the progress backup file :shock: (or whichever way round you're copying / moving the logs).

Found that one out the hard way ! :cry:

I will look into that when I have time. My newest priority is building a new website to get away from the heavy hand of Google. In the meantime, don't run out of space!

Perhaps notify the user of approximate amount of space needed for the log file so that they can plan accordingly. That said, it seems rather odd to put a log file an a drive that is near capacity.

Without knowing for sure, I am guessing the log was also on the same drive as the image file, and the image file caused the lack of space. Unless there is a stupid amount of individual bad sectors or small bad areas (or maybe major read time differences), the log shouldn't be more than a few MB. I don't think I have seen anything much over 20MB for any reasonable normal case. 100MB would be very large.

It shouldn't have been anywhere near capacity but r-studio doesn't release the file lock from an image until the application itself is closed not just the image file. Although I'd deleted a 2tb image but it was still taking up space. I'll be more careful next time, but a simple check for 0 byte log file before nuking the backup would be a good precaution in case the file wasn't written correctly anyway.

Yep.

The new website is up and running.
http://www.hddsuperclone.com

It is not what I really wanted, but it is functional. If it seems slow, you can thank GoDaddy economy web hosting, functional but cheap for a reason. I already had the domain and web hosting plan for some back end reasons, so this was not a new purchase, just some work to get the public website up on it.

If you find any issues, please let me know.

Someone asked about a cyber Monday discount sale. FYI I am thinking about it. If I do a quick sale I bet that person will be the only one that makes a purchase LOL. It might almost be worth the time and effort to set up the sale...
