ffind - Finds the name of the file or directory using a given inode
ffind [-aduvV] [-f fstype] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] [-b dev_sector_size] image inode
ffind finds the names of files or directories that are allocated to inode on disk image image. By default it only will only return the
first name it finds. With some file systems, this will find deleted file names.
One (or more if split) disk or partition images whose format is given with '-i'.
inode Integer of inode to find.
The optional arguments are:
-a Find all occurrences of inode.
-d Find deleted entries only.
Identify the file system type of the image. Use '-f list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection
methods are used.
-u Find undeleted entries only.
Identify the type of image file, such as raw or split. Use '-i list' to list the supported types. If not given, autodetection
methods are used.
The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.
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.
This program searches all directory entries looking for the given inode. This is useful when an inode has been identified from a disk unit
address using ifind(1).
# ffind -a image 212
