Re: ext3-image doesn't mount anymore and reports errors

We made an image of a partition by using dd. Original filesystem is
ext3 (4k block-size).

was it really a backup of a partition or did you backup a whole disk?
(dd if=/dev/hda1 vs. dd if=/dev/hda)

Fsck.ext3 ends in lots of inode-errors and the following one:

Error while iterating over blocks in inode 131736: Illegal triply
indirect block found
e2fsck: aborted

please make sure to use a current version of e2fsprogs and a current kernel.

We are also willing to pay a fair amount of money for recovery.

hm, a couple of weeks ago i too was in the need of ext3-recovery and some *really* famous recovery-specialist told me: "ext3? no, not possible at all." (except for grep'ing through the fs as "usual")
