Rescuing a hard drive with ddrescue

After following a few forums, I was able to rescue my hard drive with ddrescue. It took almost 24 hours, to rescue my files into a .dmg file. When it was completed I double clicked on the dmg file, and I get no mountable file system.

Can anyone help, my first born pictures are on this hard disk, and I would truly be quite upset if I can not retrieve them.


Try to manually mount it:

  • Open Disk
  • Click File > Open Disk Image
  • Select the .dmg file.

This should allow you to mount/open the dmg file and install its contents.
