NAME

       xmount  - Tool to crossmount between multiple input and output harddisk
       image files

SYNOPSIS

       xmount [[fopts] [mopts]] <ifile> [<ifile> [...]] <mntp>

DESCRIPTION

       xmount allows you to convert  on-the-fly  between  multiple  input  and
       output harddisk image types. xmount creates a virtual file system using
       FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) that contains a  virtual  representation
       of  the  input  image.  The virtual representation can be in raw DD, in
       VirtualBox’s virtual disk file format or in VmWare’s VMDK format. Input
       images  can be raw DD or EWF (Expert Witness Compression Format) files.
       In addition, xmount also supports virtual write access  to  the  output
       files  that  is  redirected to a cache file.  This makes it for example
       possible to use VirtualBox to boot an os contained in a  read-only  EWF
       image.

OPTIONS

       fopts: (Options specific to FUSE)
         -d: Enable FUSE’s and xmount’s debug mode.
         -h: Display this help message.
         -s: Run single threaded.
         -o  no_allow_other:  Disable automatic addition of FUSE’s allow_other
       option.
         -o <fmopts> :
           Specify fuse mount options. Will also disable automatic addition of
       FUSE’s
           allow_other option!
         INFO: For VMDK emulation, you have to uncomment "user_allow_other" in
               /etc/fuse.conf or run xmount as root.
       mopts: (Options specific to xmount)
         --cache <file> :
           Enable virtual write support and set cachefile to use.
         --in <type> :
           Specify input image type. Type can be "dd" or "ewf".
         --info :
           Print out some infos about used compiler and libraries.
         --out <type> :
           Specify output image type. Type can be "dd", "vdi", "vmdk(s)".
         --owcache <file> :
           Same as --cache <file> but overwrites existing cache.
         --rw <cache_file> :
           Same as --cache.
         --version :
           Same as --info.
         INFO: Input and output image type defaults to "dd" if not  specified.
       ifile:
         Input image file. If you use EWF files, you have to specify all image
         segments! (If your shell supports it, you can use .E?? as file
         extension to specify them files)
       mntp:
         Mount point where virtual files should be located.

BUGS

       Hopefully none. If you find any, please e-mail to <bugs@pinguin.lu>.

EXAMPLE

       To xmount an EWF image from your acquired disk as a raw DD image  under
       /mnt, use the following command:

         xmount --in ewf ./acquired_disk.E?? /mnt

       To  xmount the same ewf image as vdi file, you would use a command like
       this:

         xmount --in ewf --out vdi ./acquired_disk.E?? /mnt

       And to enable virtual write support on a raw DD input image xmounted as
       VDI file:

         xmount  --out  vdi  --cache  ./acquired_disk.cache ./acquired_disk.dd
       /mnt
