Hello Ian,

My idea is that it should be fairly easy to modify a utility such as
'partclone' (actually, a suite of utilities for cloning various file
systems) to spit out a ddrescue log file.  If it spat out a '?' for the
used areas of the file system and a 'X' (or whatever will mean "don't
care") for the unused areas, this log file could be used by ddrescue to
recover only the used areas of the file system, ignoring the unused areas.

I think this could be better done by using such generated logfile as argument to the option --domain-logfile. In this case '+' should be used for the used areas and '?' could be used for the "don't care" areas.

Best regards,
