Well guys, I think I'm going to try and do data carving.  I only need to
recover .doc off of this drive so I'm giving PhotoRec a go.  My image
unfortunately stopped creating after I guess I flooded my NAS while trying
PhotoRec (on the new drive - backing up to my nas :( ) on my lunch hour. 
ddrescue stopped with an I/O error....I think I can restart it from the
point it left off, right?
