Hi Paul,

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.

I have just released ddrescue-1.23-pre2 with the new --sift option:


     Shift the positions of all the blocks in MAPFILE by the offset
     ('--output-position' - '--input-position'), and write the
     resulting mapfile to standard output. Either '--input-position' or
     '--output-position' must be 0. If the offset is positive, a
     non-tried block is inserted before the first block. Any blocks
     beyond the end of the rescue domain are removed before performing
     the shift.

Hope this helps, and use with care. I have barely tested it.

Best regards,
