kfx, try getting the inode number of the file (via stat or ls -i) and then doing something like this:

xfs_db -r $DEV -c "inode $INO" -c "bmap"

# xfs_db -r /dev/sdc1 -c "inode 114748" -c "bmap"
data offset 0 startblock 1881705728 (7/2657536) count 6460 flag 0

# xfs_db -r /dev/sdc1 -c "inode 114754" -c "bmap"
data offset 0 startblock 1077794560 (4/4052736) count 6582 flag 0

If you want to see what's behind those data extents (which are probably partially written), you could do something along these lines:

# Determine the AG size
agblocks=$(xfs_db -r /dev/sdc1 -c sb -c p | grep ^agblocks | sed 's/.* = //')

# Copy the extent in the first file, which consists of 6460 blocks (~26MB)
# in AG 7 starting at AG-relative block 2657536:
dd if=/dev/sdc1 bs=4096 skip=$(($agblocks * 7 + 2657536)) count=6460 of=./blob
# examine ./blob

Awesome, it's working for each file with non-null data extents.

I guess that for inode for which the command "xfs_db -r $DEV -c "inode $INO" -c "bmap"" returns a null result there is no hope ?

Anyway, thanks a lot Nathaniel !
