Made mistake in Rerunning DDrescue


I had made an image file in an earlier iteration.

I then reran, but I made a mistake in giving the logfile location - The logfile was not there, so ddrescue started from scratch and created a new logffile. I caught the mistake early and did CTRL-C. However, in this time, ddrescue had written something to the existing image file.

Question: Is the image file still good, or do I have to start from scratch and create a new one?
