I used ntfsclone from ubuntu to copy a bad windows hard drive to a new one using:

sudo ntfsclone --rescue -f --overwrite /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1

which produces the following:

WARNING: Can't read sector at 470585344, lost data.

There's only about 70 of these warnings. How could I determine what real files were affected using these numbers?

On the hunt for the opposite, file to sector address resolution if you will, I came across your question. On a Windows box, using nfi.exe found in the Windows 2000 OEM toolkit: see http://forums.seagate.com/t5/Barracuda-XT-Barracuda-Barracuda/Tip-How-to-determine-which-file-occupies-a-particular-sector/td-p/35567
