dls - disk data recovery
dls [-aAbelsvV] [-f fstype] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] image [images]
dls opens the named image(s) and copies data blocks (disk units). By
default, dls copies unallocated data blocks (addressable disk units)
only. dls was called unrm in TCT.
-b With file systems that have logical blocks that consist of
fragments, don’t insert null-byte padding to preserve logical
block alignment in the output. This option is a no-op with the
LINUX ext2fs file system, where logical blocks and fragments
have the same size.
-e Copy every block. The output should be similar to dd(1).
-a Display all allocated blocks (same as -e if -A is also given).
-A Display all unallocated blocks (same as -e if -a is also given).
This is the default behavior.
Specifies the file system type. Use the -? argument for a list
of all supported types. If not given, the default type for the
platform is used.
Identify the type of image file, such as raw or split. Raw is
The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.
Non-512 byte sectors can be specified using ’@’ (32@2048).
-l List the data information in time machine format.
-s Copy only the slack space of the image.
-v Turn on verbose mode, output to stderr.
-V Display version.
One (or more if split) disk or partition images whose format is
given with ’-i’.
Examine the specified block number or number range.
