And if it happens to abort on error, try http://safecopy.sourceforge.net 
(available on package in recent distros) that makes quite good work on 
reading disks with read errors.  Worked better than any 
dd{_recover,rescue}.  After doing the 3-stage copy, I was able copy 
files from ext4 partition inside LVM that was in qcow2 virtual machine 
image that was on ext3 partition on LVM on the failed disk.
