debugfs question

I am trying to read a file directly from the disk using debugfs utility.

I am running "stat" on the file I want, filter out IND and Bind blocks,
and then copy the data blocks using dd directly from the Disk.

On small files it work'd (13MB).

On big files (3.5 , 440 GB)  the size is the same but md5sum get differ.

What am I doing wrong?

I umount the FS before I start so the file is not changing.


Best regards
