    Repair FILE with gddrescue.

    I could find gddrescue and ddrescue.
    Can I repair a file with gddrescue?
    Where can I find a manual?

    ddrescue is written for destroyed hds.

    I m sorry.
    I did find this and those manuals.
    But I could not find an example to save one file only.
    Thank You for help.

    Well, ddrescue tries to rebuild the directory tree of a destroyed file system, but it cannot be used to recover one file only. You have to recover the whole mess, then sift through it laboriously.

    So, to recover one file only, you need to let it run, then settle down with your laptop machine in a comfortable chair with a very large mug of coffee and a chocolate bar...

    Is there a software, which can repair destroyed files like mp4 oder wmv? It happened during recording with the digi cam. No battery and file was destroyed.
    Thank You.
