  +!!dd_rescue!!
  +AS I said, the previous hard disk in this laptop had started to fail and I replaced it. When I bought the replacement disk I also bought a USB 2 caddy (under 10.00) and I put the old disk in there.
  +  
  +The old disk is NTFS and holds a Windows XP installation. I want to recover the data and turn that old Windows XP inslallation into a virtual machine, probably running in VMWare Player on Linux.
  +  
  +The disk has bad sectors that `dd` cannot read so I got hold of dd_rescue:
  +  
  +$ sudo apt-get install ddrescue
  +  
  +Plugged the old disk in its USB caddy into the Ubuntu laptop and it is detected as a SCSI drive /dev/sda.
