Clarify how to pause or resume a session

#1 Post by gephoto » 17 Jun 2018, 17:14

My rescue of a 9TB Raid 5 is inching along. It had slowed down badly, but I stopped and resumed it and it seems to be faster again. It's still going to take 600 hours (down from 900 an hour ago).

I need to relocate my computer and hard drives. If I interrupt the session will it pick up where it left off later? I'd hate to have to start over.

I was also annoyed by chkdsk utility which was taking too long. I tried recuva, isobuster, recovermyfiles, easeus data recovery, hdd regerator, Seatools but only photorec was found to be good as it supported pause so that you could resume from the sector you left last time
