NAME

       ifind  -  Find  the meta-data structure that has allocated a given disk
       unit or file name.


SYNOPSIS

       ifind [-avVl] [-f fstype] [-d data_unit] [-n file] [-p  par_inode]  [-z
       ZONE] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] [-b dev_sector_size] image [images]


DESCRIPTION

       ifind finds the meta-data structure that has data_unit allocated a data
       unit or has a given file name.  In some cases any of the structures can
       be unallocated and this will still find the results.



ARGUMENTS

       There  are  several  required  and  optional arguments.  The image file
       names must be specified each time:

       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.


       You  must  also specify what you are looking for and include one of the
       following:

       -d data_unit
              Finds the meta data structure that has allocated  a  given  data
              unit (block, cluster, etc.)


       -n file
              Finds  the  meta  data structure that is pointed to by the given
              file name.


       -p par_inode
              Finds the unallocated MFT entries in an NTFS image that have the
              given inode as the parent.  Can be used with '-l and -z'.


       There are also several optional arguments:

       -a     Find  all  meta-data  structures (only works when looking with a
              data_unit).

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

       -l     List the details of each file found with '-p', like 'fls -l'.

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

       -o imgoffset
              The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.

       -b dev_sector_size
              The size, in bytes, of the underlying device  sectors.   If  not
              given,  the  value in the image format is used (if it exists) or
              512-bytes is assumed.

       -v     Verbose output to stderr.

       -V     Display version.

       -z ZONE
              If '-p -l' were given, this will set the timezone for  the  cor-
              rect times.



EXAMPLES

       # ifind -f fat -d 456 fat-img.dd

       # ifind -f linux-ext2 -n "/etc/" linux-img.dd

       # ifind -f ntfs -p 5 -l -z EST5EDT ntfs-img.dd
