Hello Vladimir,

The errsize reported as  9223 PB on 160Gb drive. The ipos and opos looks
also strange.

This is on Windows XP HE SP3

For some reason ddrescue is unable to automatically determine drive size on at least some Macs and some Windozes. It seems the lseek function does not work as expected. So you'll have to use the -s option:

`-s BYTES'
     Maximum size of the input data to be copied, in bytes. If ddrescue
     can't determine the size of the input device, you may need to
     specify it with this option.
