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.
|You must also specify what you are looking for and include one of the following:|
Finds the meta data structure that has allocated a given data unit (block,
Finds the meta data structure that is pointed to by the given file name.
Finds the unallocated MFT entries in an NTFS image that have the given
inode as the parent. Can be used with -l and -z.
|There are also several optional arguments:|
|-a||Find all meta-data structures (only works when looking with a data_unit).|
|-f fstype||Specify the file system type. Use -f list to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.|
|-l||List the details of each file found with -p, like fls -l.|
|-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.|
|-v||Verbose output to stderr.|
If -p -l were given, this will set the timezone for the correct times.
