I tried ddrescue on a faulty win7 laptop w/o success and found it a

That doesn't sound very encouraging...

ddrescue does the exact same thing as dd.

The difference is how they treat read errors. ddrescue insists when it
finds disk errors, does not abort.

As dd did not abort, the result would be the same.

Filesystem corruption doesn't need to be associated to i/o errors.
