I cloned a disk using ddrescue and got below result by executing mmls.

mint@mint ~ $ mmls test.img 
DOS Partition Table
Offset Sector: 0
Units are in 512-byte sectors

     Slot    Start        End          Length       Description
00:  Meta    0000000000   0000000000   0000000001   Primary Table (#0)
01:  -----   0000000000   0000000062   0000000063   Unallocated
02:  00:00   0000000063   0016386299   0016386237   Win95 FAT32 (0x0B)
03:  Meta    0016386300   0156280319   0139894020   Win95 Extended (0x0F)
04:  Meta    0016386300   0016386300   0000000001   Extended Table (#1)
05:  -----   0016386300   0016386362   0000000063   Unallocated
06:  01:00   0016386363   0156280319   0139893957   NTFS (0x07)
07:  -----   0156280320   0156301487   0000021168   Unallocated

Now how can I mount the NTFS block?I calculate offset value as 0016386363*512 and

I tried below command:

sudo mount -t ntfs -o r,force,loop,offset=8389817856 test.img /media/

But its giving below error:

NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to mount '/dev/loop3': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/loop3' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
