Morning all,

I had a strong feeling that the manual-manipulation system would be required, thank you for the detailing Scott :)

I'll make a double clone of the data recovered here and try the manual merge, but I'll also be quite interested to see Antonio's --shift option too. For now the drive is still reading ( even without the partition table being read, thankfully still accessible! ), so I'll let it run until I'm ready to migrate data across to the client's new drive.

Thanks for your answers, Scott and Ketil. :-)

Merging the logs is more complicated. The original log from the whole
disk is okay, but the log from the partition copy must be altered (make
sure to work with a copy of this log and not the original). The best way
to do this is with a spreadsheet program.

I'll implement ASAP (probably tomorrow) a --shift option for ddrescuelog that I hope will greatly simplify this part of the rescue.

Best regards,
