dd_rescue is a generic data copy and transformation tool. It copies data that's only partially readable or overwrites data with random numbers (data protection). It calculates secure hashes via a plugin. Plugins also allow to transform data -- compression and (upcoming) encryption are supported.
See my [old page](http://www.garloff.de/kurt/linux/ddrescue/) for more information for now.
