       guymager - a forensic acquisition program


       guymager [log=log_file] [cfg=configuration_file] [options]


       Guymager  is  a  Qt-based  forensic  imager. It is capable of producing
       image files in EWF and dd format. Its main strenghs are the  easy  user
       interface,  the  extended  acquisition  info  file and the high imaging

       The internal structure is based on separate threads  for  reading,  MD5
       calculation,  writing  and  includes a parallelised compression engine,
       thus making full usage of multi-processor and hyper-threading machines.

       Guymager should be run with root privileges, as other users do not have
       access to physical devices normally.


              By default, guymager uses /var/log/guymager.log as its log file.
              This option allows for specifying a different file.

              The  default  configuration  file is /etc/guymager/guymager.cfg.
              This option allows for specifying  a  different  file.  Guymager
              creates   a   template   configuration   file  when  the  option
              -cfg=template.cfg is given.

       All other configuration options may be specified on  the  command  line
       and/or  in the configuration file. See /etc/guymager/guymager.cfg for a
       description of all possible options. In case an option is specified  in
       the  configuration  file  and  on  the  command  line, the command line


       Write all log entries to ./my.log:
              guymager log=my.log

       Create a template configuration file
              guymager cfg=template.cfg

       Read the configuration from my.cfg and use 4 threads  for  parallelised
              guymager cfg=my.cfg CompressionThreads=4

       See    /etc/guymager/guymager.cfg    for    details    about     option
       CompressionThreads and all other options as well.
