blkls - List or output file system data units.
[-f fstype ] [-i imgtype ] [-o imgoffset ] [-b dev_sector_size] image [images]
blkls opens the named image(s) and copies file
system data units (blocks). By default, blkls copies the contents of unallocated
data blocks. blkls was called dls in TSK versions prior to 3.0.0. blkls
was called unrm in TCT.

- Copy every block, including file
system metadata blocks. The output is the entire file system.
- Display all
allocated blocks (same as -e if -A is also given).
- Display all unallocated
blocks (same as -e if -a is also given). This is the default behavior.
- -f fstype
the file system type. Use ’-f list’ to list the supported file system types.
If not given, autodetection methods are used.
- -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.
- List the data information
in time machine format.
- Copy only the slack space of the image.
- Turn on
verbose mode, output to stderr.
- Display version.
- 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
- start-stop ...
- Examine the specified block number or number range.
