    ddrescue - Recovering 16GB MicroSD

    Thanks for the help with my adblocker @LoGiCalDrm! I just wanted to show the process of the ddrescue, before I stopped it and tried the other solutions you guys came with. ##### UPDATE: I've just started PhotoRec, which seems to a lot faster with only 8 hours, rather than the 20 days ddrescue were running on... ... and now after about 8 hours, it couldn't find any files and continues the search: So I think the MicroSD is done and I should only be happy about I even can read the small amount of files i could from the beginning.

    Google Chrome & this website

    Yup, you were right.. - Thanks! TunnelBear Adblocker were enabled for this site.. (Sorry!) I were pretty sure that these settings were synced. So didn't even thought about my adblocker... (I thought I were missing Flash or something else...)
  3. I just logged on my laptop, to post a screenshot, but can't get the reply-box to appear? Using Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS Desktop with Google Chrome 73.0.3683.103 What am I missing??

    ddrescue - Recovering 16GB MicroSD

    I would have given it one day, tops. - Especially for only 16GB. But since I did a three times retry, I accepted that it could take longer time. But 19 days is a bit too much..... Even that it have been through multiple stages. Thanks! I use Ubuntu Desktop, so I'll take a look at it.

    ddrescue - Recovering 16GB MicroSD

    Thanks! - I will stop ddrescue and give both PhotoRec & TestDisk a try! I just thought that ddrescue were better to rescue/recover bad and/or corrupted files.

    ddrescue - Recovering 16GB MicroSD

    Thanks for the reply! I actually don't know, since it comes from my dads phone. I just wanted to rescue as many pictures as possible, since he didn't had a online solution (till now). Can TestDisk recover files, when it's corrupted? I have only used it to get back "normal deleted files or partitions". But I also think this takes too long, since I can rebuild a 4TB RAID1 within two days. (I know this is MicroSD and USB, which isn't as fast as SATA3...) Actually, I just saw that the laptop only have USB2......
  7. I have a bad 16GB MicroSD card, where I could read a small amount of its files. (Photos, Video etc.,) I ran ddrescue --retry-passes=3 /dev/mmcblk0p1 which saves to an .ISO and .LOG-file on my USB3 SSD hard drive. It have now been running for over 19 days and 2 hours. Where last successful reading, were 13 days and 15 hours ago. For the past 10 days, i think, it have been "scraping failed blocks... (forward)" (1,64% rescued) Is that really normal, for only 16GB ?? Should I just let it run or would you guys stop it?

    Any new upcoming Nvidia GTX?

    Not at the moment, thanks to my two 660s... But I would looove the possibility and if the 1080 Ti can do that and smaller can't, then I definitely keep the one I already bought!

    Any new upcoming Nvidia GTX?

    Sorry... Forgot to hit the reply button... Okaay. But even if a new is coming soon, I don't think I would spend the aprox 1500 USD on that. ... wait a minute!... I just realized how much that actually is... (Around 300 USD less than my whole PC) So that ain't gonna happen! - I would then just see how cheaper the 1080 Ti will get, if any at all... Yeah okay... So 1080 Ti should last pretty long (depends on many things, of course), if looking at the history. But then again... When only having 1080p 60Hz HDMI monitors, wouldn't it just be better to buy a smaller card and the go nuts in a year or two, when all other hardware needs to be replaces anyway? The price difference between 1070 Ti and 1080 Ti is still around 400 USD and it sounds like I don't even will be able to use the better performance due to my other hardware?

    Any new upcoming Nvidia GTX?

    Even if Nvidia said it on their website, I wouldn't belive it to be that soon! Doesn't it normally take a month or more from launch/announcement until it will be able to buy? (Ofcourse depends on country, dealer, etc...) Even with 1070 Ti, I don't have any plans on upgrading the rest at the moment. I am though pretty tired of my i7-4770K's heating problems. (up to 78 celcius with ambient temp at 14 when stress-testing.) So it won't take long but still a year or two, since it runs stable and I still can upgrade fans and CPU aio watercooler. So will the 1080 Ti still be a usefull card in a couple of years or should I just go with a smaller one now and then look for a greater card later, when the rest will be upgraded?

    Any new upcoming Nvidia GTX?

    Also....... At the moment i have three monitors which would be cool to use when gaming... But they are quite old... - 1080p and only HDMI. A 1070 Ti have 3x DP, 1x HDMI & 1x DVI, which then requires new cable(s). I'm that kind which only accepts three new DP>HDMI cables, but that costs FROM 78 USD... (Adapters could do it, but I don't expect much...) Where 1080 Ti have 2x DP, 2x HDMI & 1x DVI, which I can use right away... But what about later on, when I upgrade my monitors which then have DP-ports? Will it affect anything that I then have to use HDMI on one of my monitors? I have though been recommended to only buy one good/great gaming monitor (curved, maybe ) and then just skip the rest when gaming...

    Any new upcoming Nvidia GTX?

    Everybody... Sorry for the late reply! I had an appointment at the vet with my dog... Which then must be the 1180 the rest are talking about, for around 1500 USD... I could - "if necessary" - wait a month or so... But not 6 months like Peskanova mentions... And if I decided to wait, it would only be to see the prices on the 1080 Ti. Which I honestly don't think would drop that much... I did actually order a 1070 Ti at first, but never picked it up. Because after some reading and youtubing, a lot of people thinks it's a card that never should have been made. (Mostly due to the striction about manifactor OC (and prices?)) But of what I understood, it should easily be OCed up to a 1080 stock performance? It is much cheaper though... - But how long will it last when OCed versus the 1080 Ti? Here's a more precise pricelist from the same store I bought my 1080 Ti: (Can be found a bit cheaper...) (All MSI Gaming X, except 1070 Ti. - Asus = ROG Strix) 1060: $416 (Asus OC: $452) 1070: $650 (Asus OC: $635) 1070 Ti: $635 (Asus Advanced: $706) 1080: $790 (Asus: $760) 1080 Ti: $1044 (Asus OC: $1107) I can afford much much more, even that I think 1044 USD is a bit much... (Especially when I'm not gaming that much, due to my bad 660s...) But then... When will the 1180 be launched, since it sounds like it's not even confirmed yet? I could wait about a month, but not much longer... What I'm most concerned about, is that my CPU will be a huge bottleneck to the 1080 Ti and I instead could have bought a smaller/cheaper card to get the exact same performance for much less money. But... If a ie. 1070(Ti) can deliver same details/quality atm., but the 1080 Ti will last (much) longer, I really think it would be worth it. In some point, I have to upgrade my CPU, etc., later on and if the 1080 Ti lasts longer, then I don't have to worry about a new GPU. (Instead I then easily could spend more money on a proper CPU and enough RAM... ) Haha... Thanks! I have been thinking about a new nickname, since its not allowed everywhere...

    Any new upcoming Nvidia GTX?

    Are there any new upcoming Nvidia GTXs on its way? Because, I've just bought a MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X for around 1050 USD. (Haven't installed it yet.) But then I started to think if it were a bit overkill for my i7-4770K CPU, MSI Z87-G45 Gaming motherboard and 16 GB RAM...? I then heard from a friend that a new model should be on its way, so I maybe should wait before buying a new GFX. The reason why I'm looking for new GFX, is due to my two bad 2-way SLI 660s, where the fans now are completely dead, unless they run at 100%. Sooo.... Should I return it and wait, maybe buy a smaller card or just install the 1080 Ti and go nuts, untill my CPU will bottleneck it? I want to "secure the future", but I do still have a very old CPU and only three 24" 1080P HDMI monitors...

    Multiple monitors on a single GTX (1070 Ti)

    That would make sense... But I just saw in another thread in here, that several people say that the standard max amount is 4 monitors on 1070 Ti. Checks out MSI says the same for the 1070 Ti Gaming 8GB GDDR5, which have 3x DP, 1x HDMI & 1x DVI.

    Multiple monitors on a single GTX (1070 Ti)

    I tried to find the forum where I read about the active adapters, where the closest thing is on a AMD card... So it looks like I just have mixed a lot together... Okay... So maybe that's why two of my left & right monitors turns black now and then? (Can see that they use DVI to HDMI cable, where my center monitor use plain HDMI.) But now when you have a 1080 Ti... Have you ever tried a 1070 Ti? I'm still wondering if the extra 470 USD for a 1080 Ti will be worth it, especially now when I'm upgrading from 660. But I do rarely play any games and when I do, it's not any high-end games... As an example, it's games like GTA V, Mafia 3, Mad Max, BF3/4, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell and then I'm thinking about buying Players Unknown Battleground. My monitors (Asus VN247H) are so old that they only support 1080p... So will it still be a problem gaming on all three, connected to the 1070 Ti? Because I am still considering buying the 1080 Ti, but actually don't think it would be worth the extra 470 USD until I buy new monitors... Running a smaller monitor on the iGPU actually sound really interesting! Because I use a whole monitor just for my IP surveillance......... So now when I didn't thought it was possible, maybe I should read more about it and try it out...
