Incidentally, is it safe to resume rescuing with a newer version of
ddrescue (I started with 1.16)?

Yes. The logfile format has not changed since version 1.6.

Also, do you have any advice about my situation?  My SSD is connected via
this SATA-to-USB
and I'm having to manually yank the power every two minutes (because it
hangs and this is the only way I can read from the drive again - merely
removing the usb cable isn't enough).  This is rather tedious - especially
since the average rate has dropped to about 3 - 5 KBps, and I still have 43
GB to go.  :(

The SATA-to-USB adapter may be the problem. See for example this message:

Thanks for making such an amazing piece of software.  It truly is a service
to humanity.  It is the major reason I have developed a keen interest in
Linux.  :)

My pleasure. :-)
