[Ilugc] Recover files from a clobbered ext4 fs

The unthinkable happened.
One of my junior engineer did a
dd_rescue <some_iso_image> /dev/sdc
(instead of /dev/sdd) in a moment of haste
/dev/sdc happens to be a 1TB HDD that held an ext4 partition and all
my archives (~650GB) were on it.
The ISO image is about 685MB. Although the partition table and upto
685MB has been clobbered, I am hoping the files in the remainder are
(I realize some files may not be recoverable at all).
At present, I am running 'testdrive' (from the author of photorec) to
see what it recognizes.
Any other suggestions welcome.
