GNU ddrescue

https://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/
GNU ddrescue copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying hard to rescue data in case of read errors. The basic operation of ddrescue is fully automatic. That is, you don't have to wait for an error, stop the program, read the log, run it in reverse mode, etc. If you use the logfile feature of ddrescue, the data is rescued very efficiently (only the needed blocks are read). Also you can interrupt the rescue at any time and resume it later at the same point.

Documentation

The package name for the GNU ddrescue in Trisquel and Debian is gddrescue, since a different project shares a similar name.
