tsk_recover — Export files from an image into a local directory

Synopsis

tsk_recover [-vVae] [ -f fstype ] [ -i imgtype ] [ -b dev_sector_size ] [ -o sector_offset ] [ -d dir_inum ] image [images] output_dir

Description

tsk_recover recovers files to the output_dir from the image. By default recovers only unallocated files. With flags, it will export all files.

The arguments are as follows:

-v
verbose output to stderr
-V
Print version
-a
Recover allocated files only
-e
Recover all files (allocated and unallocated)
-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.
-d dir_inum
Directory inum to recover from (must also specify a specific partition using -o or there must not be a volume system)
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.
output_dir
The directory in which to save recovered files.

Examples

To recover only unallocated files from image.dd to the recovered directory:

# tsk_recover ./image.dd ./recovered
