tsk_gettimes - Man Page

Collect MAC times from a disk image into a body file.


tsk_gettimes [-vV] [ -f fstype ] [ -i imgtype ] [ -b dev_sector_size ] [ -z zone ] [ -s seconds ] image [images]


tsk_gettimes examines each of the file systems in a disk image and returns the data about them in the MACtime body format (the same as running 'fls -m' on each file system).  The output of this can be used as input to mactime to make a timeline of file activity. The data is printed to STDOUT, which can then be redirected to a file.

The arguments are as follows:


verbose output to stderr


Print version

-f fstype

Specify the file system type. Use '-f list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.

-i imgtype

The format of the image file, such as raw. Use '-i list' to list the supported types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.

-b dev_sector_size

The size (in bytes) of the device sectors. If not given, autodetection methods are used.  

-o sector_offset

Sector offset for a volume to recover (recovers only that volume) If not given, will attempt to recover all volumes in image and save them to different folders.

-s seconds

The time skew of the original system in seconds.  For example, if the original system was 100 seconds slow, this value would be -100.  

-z zone

The ASCII string of the time zone of the original system.  For example, EST or GMT.  These strings must be defined by your operating system and may vary.

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.


To collect data about image image.dd:

# tsk_gettimes ./image.dd > body.txt
