fiwalk: print the filesystem statistics and exit

NAME

fiwalk - print the filesystem statistics and exit

SYNOPSIS

 fiwalk [options] iso-name

DESCRIPTION

fiwalk 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.

OPTIONS

-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:

-I
ignore NTFS system files
-g
just report the file objects - don't get the data
-O
only walk allocated files
-b
do not report byte runs if data not accessed
-z
do not calculate MD5 or SHA1 values
-Gnn
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:

-M
Report MD5 for each file (default on)
-1
Report SHA1 for each file (default on)
-f
Report the output of the 'file' command for each

Output options: -m = Output in SleuthKit 'Body file' format

-A<file>
ARFF output to <file>
-X<file>
XML output to a <file> (full DTD)
-X0
Write output to filename.xml
-Z
zap (erase) the output file
-x
XML output to stdout (no DTD)
-T<file>
Walkfile output to <file>
-a <audit.txt>
Read the scalpel audit.txt file

Misc:

-d
debug this program
-v
Enable SleuthKit verbose flag
