New port: sysutils/safecopy
Safecopy is a data recovery tool which tries to extract as much
data as possible from a problematic (i.e. damaged sectors) source -
like floppy drives, hard disk partitions, CDs, tape devices etc, ...
, where other tools like dd would fail due to I/O errors. Safecopy
includes a low level IO layer to read CDROM disks in raw mode, and
issue device resets and other helpful low level operations on a
number of other device classes. The project also includes a device
simulator which can be used to simulate bad media for testing and
benchmarking safecopy as well as other data rescue tools.
