DESCRIPTIONfiwalk is a program that processes a disk image using the SleuthKit library and outputs its results in Digital Forensics XML, the Attribute Relationship File Format (ARFF) format used by the Weka Datamining Toolkit, or an easy-to-read textual format.
This application uses SleuthKit to generate a report of all of the files and orphaned inodes found in a disk image. It can optionally compute the MD5 of any objects, save those objects into a directory, or both.
- -c config.txt
- read config.txt for metadata extraction tools
- -C nn
- only process nn files, then do a clean exit
Include/exclude parameters; may be repeated:
- -n pattern
- only match files for which the filename matches the pattern. Example: -n .jpeg -n .jpg will find all JPEG files. Case is ignored. Will not match orphan files.
Ways to make this program run faster:
- ignore NTFS system files
- just report the file objects - don't get the data
- only walk allocated files
- do not report byte runs if data not accessed
- do not calculate MD5 or SHA1 values
- Only process the contents of files smaller than nn gigabytes (default 2). Use -G0 to remove space restrictions.
Ways to make this program run slower:
- Report MD5 for each file (default on)
- Report SHA1 for each file (default on)
- Report the output of the 'file' command for each
Output options: -m = Output in SleuthKit 'Body file' format
- ARFF output to <file>
- XML output to a <file> (full DTD)
- Write output to filename.xml
- zap (erase) the output file
- XML output to stdout (no DTD)
- Walkfile output to <file>
- -a <audit.txt>
- Read the scalpel audit.txt file
- debug this program
- Enable SleuthKit verbose flag
