NAME

       ifind - Find the meta-data structure that has allocated a given disk unit or file name.

SYNOPSIS

       ifind  [-avVl]  [-f fstype] [-d data_unit] [-n file] [-p par_inode] [-z ZONE] [-i imgtype]
       [-o imgoffset] [-b dev_sector_size] image [images]

DESCRIPTION

       ifind finds the meta-data structure that has data_unit allocated a  data  unit  or  has  a
       given  file  name.   In  some cases any of the structures can be unallocated and this will
       still find the results.

ARGUMENTS

       There are several required and optional arguments.  The image file names must be specified
       each time:

       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.

       You must also specify what you are looking for and include one of the following:

       -d data_unit
              Finds the meta data structure that has allocated a given data unit (block, cluster,
              etc.)

       -n file
              Finds the meta data structure that is pointed to by the given file name.

       -p par_inode
              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.

       -V     Display version.

       -z ZONE
              If '-p -l' were given, this will set the timezone for the correct times.

EXAMPLES

       # ifind -f fat -d 456 fat-img.dd

       # ifind -f linux-ext2 -n "/etc/" linux-img.dd

       # ifind -f ntfs -p 5 -l -z EST5EDT ntfs-img.dd
