Look, GNU ddrescue AND dd_rescue are typical LINUX apps.

I already pointed you to a good, known to be working GUI windows tool, TWICE:

A win32 version of ddrescue is available here:

http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/gnu/gnu-win32/release/ddrescue/

Use 7-zip to open the bz compressed tar archive.

READ about CygWin:

Take your time on it.

Hi jaclaz, Thanks again for the software, but the problem is that, the hard drive immediately disconnect itself does not let me to image even a little part of it.

I tried this thing on windows environment, the question is if in linux it will be the same. I never worked with linux before.

This wouldn't be related to this issue would it?

We are great multitaskers here, but I am going to recommend that have a single thread for your hard drive repair questions instead of a bunch of them.

I don't think things will change much, however READ here:
