How much is saved? Maybe, it is enough?
Stopping and relaunching is safe.
I recommend you to stop execution for now via CTRL+C. The log will be saved.
Please note, sometimes -d did not work for me as expected - it reported ALL 
"error=BAD" sectors, so keep a backup copy of the log!!!
Then try disable drive caching and enable direct mode, and restart ddrescue 
with slightly modified command line.

in UBUNTU, I use:
hdparm -A 0 /dev/sda
hdparm -a 0 /dev/sda
hdparm --direct /dev/sda
ddrescue -v -v -v -v -d -r2 /dev/sda1 /media/disco_NEW/disco_NEW.img 

Good luck!
