Source Drive

The source drive you selected.

Use both high- and low-level disk operations (recommended).

This is the default selection. Disk Recoup™ will try to balance between speed and fault tolerance to optimize the copy operation.

Use only standard (high-level) disk operations.

High-level disk operations are faster but more sensitive to hardware faults.

Read size (sectors): The number of sectors per disk read. A larger value means faster copying. A smaller value means fewer read errors.

Use only low-level (hardware) disk operations.

Low-level disk operations are slower but more tolerant to hardware faults.

  • Read size (sectors): See above.
  • Timeout (seconds): The time the program will wait for a disk read before considering the read to have failed. This value should only be changed under our advice or by an expert user knowledgeable of hardware-level disk operations.
