Description: WHDD is a HDD diagnostic and data recovery tool for Linux. It is capable of testing a hard drive with reading and writing, providing intuitive  visualization of the process. Visualization or these tests is very similar to 
MHDD.

Amongst others, there is a function for copying the device. The copying procedure algorithms are optimized for least harm to already-defective source 
device.

WHDD may work with your hard drives on low level, sending ATA commands to device, the benefits are:

* No system freeze while accessing damaged device (device is soft-reset on timeout);
* Better timing precision.

Ooops, upstream is faltering on the license, as he doesn't know which GPL version is suitable...

Meanwhile whdd crashes on Fedora 22 sometimes, digging...

patch to fix "relocation R_X86_64_32S against `.rodata' can not be used" build error

Now build (at least on on F23 inside mock chroot) fails with "relocation R_X86_64_32S against `.rodata' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC". The patch attached fixes that.

I know this, no need to send it here.

Months ago when I found this I then realized that even upstream didn't know if it works properly on 64bit systems
