NAME

       tsk_recover - Export files from an image into a local directory

SYNOPSIS

       tsk_recover [-vVae] [ -f fstype ] [ -i imgtype ] [ -b dev_sector_size ] [ -o sector_offset
       ] [ -d dir_inum ] image [images] output_dir

DESCRIPTION

       tsk_recover recovers files to the output_dir from the image.   By  default  recovers  only
       unallocated files. With flags, it will export all files.

       The arguments are as follows:

       -v     verbose output to stderr

       -V     Print version

       -a     Recover allocated files only

       -e     Recover all files (allocated and unallocated)

       -f fstype
              Specify  the  file  system  type.   Use '-f list' to list the supported file system
              types.  If not given, autodetection methods are used.

       -i imgtype
              The format of the image file, such as raw.  Use '-i list'  to  list  the  supported
              types.  If not given, autodetection methods are used.

       -b dev_sector_size
              The size (in bytes) of the device sectors.  If not given, autodetection methods are
              used.

       -o sector_offset
              Sector offset for a volume to recover (recovers only that  volume)  If  not  given,
              will attempt to recover all volumes in image and save them to different folders.

       -d dir_inum
              Directory  inum to recover from (must also specify a specific partition using -o or
              there must not be a volume system)

       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.

       output_dir
              The directory in which to save recovered files.

EXAMPLES

       To recover only unallocated files from image.dd to the recovered directory:

            # tsk_recover ./image.dd ./recovered
