Even though it doesn't use different algorithms, programs
like dd_rescue and ddrescue can also change the block size
upon encountering read errors, and apply several cycles of
read attempts. In worst case, there will be "gaps" in the
result. Surely SpinRite is "more clever" than that, using
some means to "extrapolate" the missing data.
