Raw disk image - Khyrenz-FileCarvingImage

Logical image of a 2GB volume taken from a USB, designed to be used to validate file carving tools.

ZIP archive contains:
- Raw volume image: Khyrenz-FileCarvingImage-USB-logical-2GB-formatted.dd
- Acquisition text file (generated by FTK Imager): Khyrenz-FileCarvingImage-USB-logical-2GB-formatted.001.txt
- List of files present in Unallocated Space: Khyrenz-FileCarvingImage-USB-logical-2GB-test_file_list.pdf

A selection of test files of varying file formats was collected or generated, and then copied onto a USB device, which had been formatted to contain a 2GB FAT16 volume. This volume was subsequently re-formatted using the built-in Windows ‘quick format’ process, in order to remove filesystem metadata.

A raw logical image of the USB device volume was generated using FTK Imager 4.

Organized Files

Raw logical image of a 2GB NTFS volume with clusters containing filesystem metadata removed​, designed to be used to validate file carving and keyword searching tools.


ZIP archive contains:
- Modified raw volume image: Khyrenz-FileCarving-ClusterBoundaries.001
- List of files present in image, including file content and metadata: Khyrenz-FileCarving-ClusterBoundaries-CatFiles_File_list.pdf


A selection of test files of varying file formats was collected or generated. These files were copied onto a USB device, which had been formatted to contain a 2GB NTFS volume. A raw logical image of the USB device volume was generated using FTK Imager 4.2.0.13. This image was then manually edited to remove all clusters containing NTFS metadata.

Raw disk images - Khyrenz-FileCarving-CatFiles

'Image' created to consist of files concatenated together, ignoring Cluster boundaries, designed to be used to validate file carving or keyword searching tools.


ZIP archive contains:
- Concatenated files: Khyrenz-FileCarving-CatFiles.001
- List of files present in image, including file content and metadata
: Khyrenz-FileCarving-ClusterBoundaries-CatFiles_File_list.pdf

A selection of test files of varying file formats was collected or generated. 
The files were then concatenated together using the command:

cat Files/* > Khyrenz-FileCarving-CatFiles.001
