     ewfexport - exports media data stored in EWF files


     ewfexport [-A codepage] [-B amount_of_bytes] [-c compression_type]
               [-d digest_type] [-f format] [-l log_filename] [-o offset]

     ewfexport is a utility to export media data stored in EWF files.

     ewfexport is part of the libewf package.  libewf is a library to support
     the Expert Witness Compression Format (EWF).  libewf supports both the
     SMART format (EWF-S01) and the EnCase format (EWF-E01).  libewf currently
     does not support the Logical Volume format (EWF-L01). EWF-X is an
     expirimental format intended for testing purposes to enhance the EWF
     format.  libewf allows you to read and write media data in the EWF

     ewf_files the first or the entire set of EWF segment files

     The options are as follows:

     -A codepage
             the codepage of header section, options: ascii (default),
             windows-874, windows-1250, windows-1251, windows-1252,
             windows-1253, windows-1254, windows-1255, windows-1256,
             windows-1257, windows-1258

     -B amount_of_bytes
             the amount of bytes to export

     -c compression_type
             the compression type, options: none (default), empty-block, fast,
             best (not used for raw format)

     -d digest_type
             calculate additional digest (hash) types besides md5, options:
             sha1 (not used for raw format)

     -f format
             the file format to write to, options: raw (default), ewf, smart,
             ftk, encase1, encase2, encase3, encase4, encase5, encase6,
             linen5, linen6, ewfx.

     -h      shows this help

     -l log_filename
             logs export errors and the digest (hash) to the log filename

     -o offset
             the offset to start the export (default is 0)

     -p process_buffer_size
             the process buffer size (default is the chunk size)

     -s      swap byte pairs of the media data (from AB to BA) (use this for
             big to little endian conversion and vice versa)

     -S segment_file_size
             the segment file size in bytes (default is 1.4 GiB) (minimum is
             1.0 MiB, maximum is 7.9 EiB for encase6 format and 1.9 GiB for
             other formats) (not used for raw format)

     -t target
             the target file to export to, use - for stdout (default is
             export) stdout is only supported for the raw format

     -u      unattended mode (disables user interaction)

     -v      verbose output to stderr

     -V      print version

     -w      wipe sectors on CRC error (mimic EnCase like behavior)






     ewfexport will ask the information it needs.

     Errors, verbose and debug output are printed to stderr when verbose
     output -v is enabled. Verbose and debug output are only printed when
     enabled at compilation.
