MEPIS 12/MX 14 Community Repo: The DDRescue-GUI Thread


Post by Stevo » Tue Jan 12, 2016 5:52 pm

ddrescue-gui 1.4 is now in the test repository.

DDRescue-GUI is a program designed to make it easier to use GNU ddrescue (A Command-Line data recovery tool). It provides a simple graphical method for using ddrescue. This is designed to be as user-friendly as possible so users new to Linux can use ddrescue easily.
DDRescue-GUI is a simple GUI written in Python 2 designed to make the data recovery tool, ddrescue, easier for beginners to use. It's designed for Linux, and more recently Apple OS X, as KDiskRescue appears to be abandoned, with the last update in 2006. DDRescue-GUI is desgined to look native on almost all Desktop Environments, so whichever one you use, it should look familiar.

One nice feature is that you can use it to make an MX Live USB easily from the ISO. So you can create an MX 15 Live USB in MX 14 directly, without messing around with UNetbootin.
