Hi,

if I had less space (and no time to buy an extra USB hard drive) and could translate the CHS to bytes/blocks of disk space, I would do something like:
assume 512 blocks, and HeadSector size of 7697074bytes
bc of 7697074*6402/512 yields 96243491 which is probably completely wrong.
(is this roughly a 55GB device?)


Yes, it is about 55 GiB device. Can i proceed so  with this ?

dd if=/dev/whole_solid_state_disk \
   of=/path/to/spare11GB/SSD.image \
   seek=96243491 conv=noerror bs=512

And remember, the device is already failing... you MIGHT only get one more read, so take that into consideration when choosing the method for getting the image.
