dump.f2fs - Man Page

retrieve directory and file entries from an F2FS-formated image


dump.f2fs [ -i inode number ] [ -I inode number ] [ -n NAT range ] [ -M Block map ] [ -s SIT range ] [ -a SSA range ] [ -b block address ] [ -d debugging-level ] device


dump.f2fs is used to retrieve f2fs metadata (usually in a disk partition). device is the special file corresponding to the device (e.g. /dev/sdXX).

Currently, it can retrieve 1) a file given its inode number, 2) NAT entries into a file, 3) SIT entries into a file, 4) SSA entries into a file, 5) reverse information from the given block address.

The exit code returned by dump.f2fs is 0 on success and -1 on failure.


-i inode number

Specify an inode number to dump out.

-I inode number

Specify an inode number and scan full disk to dump out, include history inode block

-n NAT range

Specify a range presented by nids to dump NAT entries.

-M Block map

Show all the allocated block addresses given inode number.

-s SIT range

Specify a range presented by segment numbers to dump SIT entries.

-a SSA range

Specify a range presented by segment numbers to dump SSA entries.

-b block address

Specify a block address to retrieve its metadata information.

-d debug-level

Specify the level of debugging options. The default number is 0, which shows basic debugging messages.
