    Hack 59 Rescue Files from Damaged Hard Drives

    All,

    I am using the Knoppix Hacks (O'Reilly) and need some clarity with one of the steps to rescue files from damaged hard drive. Under the following link:

    http://codeidol.com/unix/knoppix/Rep...d-Hard-Drives/

    There is a step that states:

    Replace /dev/hda1 with the partition that you are recovering, and /mnt/hdb1 with the mount point where you are saving the image. As dd_rhelp scans the drive, it prints out all of its progress, including any errors it finds. When it finishes, you should have two files in your recovery drive: the image and a log from dd_rescue, in case you want to audit its progress.

    The above does not make sense to me. After dd_rhelp is run, the image file and audit file are already created.

    "Replace /dev/hda1 with the partition that you are recovering....."

    Am I running dd_rhelp twice? Please advice. Thanks in advance.
