Subject: Re: ext4 recovery

You can use "filefrag -k" to get units of KB instead of blocks for the physical offsets of the files, and "lvdisplay -m /dev/XXX" to show the mapping of LVs to disks (not sure if you can get it to print different units, or just LE number and you gave to multiply by the LE size).  Hopefully the LV was layer out linearly and is just a matter of computing "> X and < Y" to determine the affected range. 

Note that it is likely that some files which were on the second disk will not show anything from filefrag since the inodes were zeroed out by dd_rescue. Some files on the second disk that _do_ show blocks that were allocated on that disk may just have zeroes for the data. 

Cheers, Andreas
