NAME

dls - disk data recovery  

SYNOPSIS



dls [-aAbelsvV] [-f fstype] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset]
image [images] [start-stop]
 

DESCRIPTION

dls opens the named image(s) and copies data blocks (disk units). By default, dls copies unallocated data blocks (addressable disk units) only. dls was called unrm in TCT.

Arguments:

-b
With file systems that have logical blocks that consist of fragments, don't insert null-byte padding to preserve logical block alignment in the output. This option is a no-op with the LINUX ext2fs file system, where logical blocks and fragments have the same size.
-e
Copy every block. The output should be similar to dd(1).
-a
Display all allocated blocks (same as -e if -A is also given).
-A
Display all unallocated blocks (same as -e if -a is also given). This is the default behavior.
-f fstype
Specifies the file system type. Use the -? argument for a list of all supported types. If not given, the default type for the platform is used.
-i imgtype
Identify the type of image file, such as raw or split. Raw is the default.
-o imgoffset
The sector offset where the file system starts in the image. Non-512 byte sectors can be specified using '@' (32@2048).
-l
List the data information in time machine format.
-s
Copy only the slack space of the image.
-v
Turn on verbose mode, output to stderr.
-V
Display version.
image [images]
One (or more if split) disk or partition images whose format is given with '-i'.
start-stop ...
Examine the specified block number or number range.
