tsk_loaddb - populate a SQLite database with metadata from a disk image
tsk_loaddb [-ahkvV] [ -i imgtype ] [ -b dev_sector_size ] [ -i imgtype
] [ -d database ] image [images]
tsk_loaddb loads disk information
from image to a SQLite database. This database can then be used by tools
in other languages for analysis. By default, the database is stored in the
same directory as the image with ".db" appended to the name or the database
name can be specified with ’-d’.
The arguments are as follows:
To load image data from image.dd to image.dd.db:
- Adds image
to an existing database instead of creating a new one. Requires that -d
be also specified.
- -d database
- Path for the database (default is the same
directory as the image with name derived from image name
- verbose output
- Print version
- Don’t create block data table. This table maps
each block to the file that allocated it. This option will make this program
- Calculate MD5 hash value for each file and store it in table.
This option will make the program run slower.
- -i imgtype
- The format of the
image file, such as raw. Use ’-i list’ to list the supported types. If not given,
autodetection methods are used.
- -b dev_sector_size
- The size (in bytes) of
the device sectors. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
- image [images]
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
# tsk_loaddb ./image.dd
