ffind man page

ffind — Finds the name of the file or directory using a given inode


ffind [-aduvV] [-f fstype] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] [-b dev_sector_size] image [images] inode


ffind finds the names of files or directories that are allocated to inode on disk image image. By default it only will only return the first name it finds. With some file systems, this will find deleted file names.


Find all occurrences of inode.
Find deleted entries only.
-f fstype
Identify the file system type of the image. Use '-f list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
Find undeleted entries only.
-i imgtype
Identify the type of image file, such as raw. Use '-i list' to list the supported types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
-o imgoffset
The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.
-b dev_sector_size
The size, in bytes, of the underlying device sectors. If not given, the value in the image format is used (if it exists) or 512-bytes is assumed.
Verbose output to stderr.
Display version.
image [images]
The disk or partition image to read, whose format is given with '-i'. Multiple image file names can be given if the image is split into multiple segments. If only one image file is given, and its name is the first in a sequence (e.g., as indicated by ending in '.001'), subsequent image segments will be included automatically.
Integer of inode to find.

This program searches all directory entries looking for the given inode. This is useful when an inode has been identified from a disk unit address using ifind(1).
