Blank files after cloning with ddrescue

Hi,

I've recently made a clone from my failing external drive, with ddrescue. The cloning seem to be suuccesful, but when I open up the clone drive, a lot of files lost metadata.
I have only the filename and the filesize are ok.

is there any way to retrieve the broken files?

Thanks!
