Recovering files from E01 Image

#1 Post by liam2018 » 04 May 2018, 10:24


I'd be grateful for any help or advice -

I have an E01 image created with FTK imager of a small FAT32 USB device. I am trying to work out the command line (scripted run) to use PhotoRec to search for all image files and copy them to a folder outside of the E01.

I am currently using the following .bat file command:

Code: Select all

"C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\E01\photorec\Release\photorec.exe" /debug /log /d "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\E01\Result" /cmd "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\E01\test.E01" search,jpg,enable
However, when I run this, it appears to start, but the only output I get is a folder called 'Result.1' which contains a smaller E01 file, and an XML file called 'report.xml'.

Could anyone please advice me what i'm doing wrong please? Ideally i'm looking for a command to search E01 for any images, and copy to a separate folder without having to specify the partition type inside of the E01 etc.

Thank you in advance for any advice.

The image file is split in several files, you should use

Code: Select all

"C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\E01\photorec\Release\photorec.exe" /debug /log /d "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\E01\Result" /cmd "C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\E01\test.E*" search,jpg,enable
