Data recovery using `safecopy`

safecopy could be a useful addition to the article: it can rescue data from a damaged medium through a multi-stage process similar to ddrescue, but comes with presets for a pretty well thought out three-step process (e.g. safecopy --stage1 /dev/source target.img && safecopy --stage2 /dev/source target.img && safecopy --stage3 /dev/source target.img), so it should be much more intuitive to use for an inexperienced user.
I currently don't have enough time to flesh this out for inclusion in the article, but I figured I'd leave this here for future reference. -- n-st (talk) 11:45, 26 November 2017 (UTC)
