Syntax is simple:

dd_rhelp {filename|device} {output-file}

that's all. It will automatically create a log. In your case:

# dd_rhelp /dev/sdc wd3200avvs.img

Seems too simple to be correct. :-p

You see why I like it?

You write the line with "info" at the end on a second terminal once there
is one running already, to ask info of the first one.

On completion, it generated this:
Probing logfile location : '...wd3200avvs.img.log'
Log file exists already.
Found convenient logfile location '...wd3200avvs.img.log'
=== dd_rhelp INFO - 1 parsed chunks...
- Biggest unparsed chunk: 0 byte
- xferd(succ/err): 298.09 GiB(298.09 GiB/332.00 KiB)
left to parse: 0 byte
- End of file: EOF = 298.09 GiB

All your data has been dd_rescued !!

Please note that it doesn't mean that it has been RECOVERED:...[/quote]

I'm not sure if this part: "100.00%(99.99%/0%)" means that there is a little bit that failed, but if it is so, the program thought it impossible to copy it over.

It says that "332.00 KiB" are in error, anyway. Very probably, being video, only means that some movies have a burp. Only an issue if it affects metadata.

(If a sector is totally unreadable, it is replaced with zeroes)

So it seems all that must be done is dd that image back to the new HD when it
arrives. I'm not sure how long it took. I don't see in the 1MB+ log the start
time. Finish was about 20 minutes ago, so based on my last thread post here I
guess it took a bit over 5 hours.

The log purpose is that you can abort the operation and continue it when you wish, not really to be read.

Thanks to Greg, David, Dave and Carlos for the help!!!
