hangs 6 hours in

I'm using photorec 6.13 on Ubuntu 12.04 (64 bit). I have a 1000GB hfs+ partition I recovered from a failing disk with dd_rescue. photorec has started to do a great job, but it always hangs (interface freezes completely, left it for over an hour with no updates) after about 6.5 hours.

When I run photorec again in the same way, it asks if I want to 'Continue previous session', to which I say Yes, but unfortunately this doesn't seem to work properly, as it starts from the beginning and finds the same files as in recup_dir.1 and up.

I've tried running with the low memory (this is a 2GB system).

Can anyone suggest anything that might help? Photorec is doing a great job, but the bits I really need are likely right at the end of the drive...

Thanks in advance,

Mine office PC presents the similar problem and its so much irritating if it hangs during important work. I am also searching for solution. Hope I'll get here.
