This small tool allows the user to graphically examine ddrescue's log files in a user friendly GUI application. The Main window displays a block grid with each block's color representing the block types it contains. Many people know this type of view from defragmentation programs.
The program is written in Object Pascal using the Lazarus IDE. It can be compiled to run on Windows, GNU/Linux and probably OS X, too.
The downloads include binaries for the respective target platform and the project files (source code).
- Display ddrescue log in a colored block graphic
- Examine each block in the image, see a detailed list of log entries contained
- To keep track of the rescue process, ddrescueview can automatically re-read the logfile
- Units can be displayed with decimal (KB, MB...) or binary (KiB, MiB...) prefixes
This program is very helpful. Thank you!
