[Bug-ddrescue] Question about reported errorsize

I'm running ddrescue from a Trinity Rescue CD (3.4-bld-372) on a 500GB
hard drive with two NTFS partitions on it.  The hard drive is dying and
I'm hoping to move the data to a new hard drive so it can be saved.

I've issued his command:

ddrescue /dev/sda /dev/sdb

and the process is underway now.

ddrescue has reported only ONE error and the errorsize is 500GB.  It has
51MB of data and is in the "splitting" phase now. It looks as if it's
going to try to split the 500GB of "errors" reported in "errorsize".

My question:  does the fact that 500GB was reported as the errorsize
mean this process is most likely going to fail?  Is it worth spending
the time to go through the "splitting" phase?

I believe I'm running ddrescue 1.14, but I'm not sure.
