Hello Daniel,

When I came back I typed "ddrescue -n /dev/sdb image log" to restart

failed blocks".
I checked the image file and it was around ~300GB as expected. Did I
do something wrong or is this a bug? What should I do to get it
rescuing back from ~300GB?

The image file must be at least as large as the rescued size because it contains the rescued data plus probably some not-yet-rescued holes. If ddrescue is displaying a rescued size larger than the image file it is a bug.

This said, be careful with the units. 300GiB are about 322GB. Did you use the -B option the first time?

In theory you do not need to do anything more, but wait, for ddrescue to continue rescuing where you stopped it.

I hope you can get all your data back. Good luck!
