libewf is a library to access the Expert Witness Compression Format (EWF).

Project information:

  • Status: experimental
  • Licence: LGPLv3+

Read or write supported EWF formats:

  • SMART .s01 (EWF-S01)
  • EnCase
    • .E01 (EWF-E01)
    • .Ex01 (EWF2-Ex01)

Not supported:

  • .Ex01 (EWF2-Ex01) bzip2 compression (work in progress)
  • .Ex01 (EWF2-Ex01) encryption

Read-only supported EWF formats:

  • Logical Evidence File (LEF)
    • .L01 (EWF-L01)
    • .Lx01 (EWF2-Lx01)

Other features:

  • empty-block compression
  • read/write access using delta (or shadow) files
  • write resume

Work in progress:

  • Dokan library support (experimental)
  • Python bindings (including Python 3 support)
  • write EWF2-Ex01 support
  • Multi-threading support

Planned:

  • write EWF-L01 and EWF2-Lx01 (long-term)

The libewf package contains the following tools:

  • ewfacquire; which writes storage media data from devices and files to EWF files.
  • ewfacquirestream; which writes data from stdin to EWF files.
  • ewfdebug; experimental tool does nothing at the moment.
  • ewfexport; which exports storage media data in EWF files to (split) RAW format or a specific version of EWF files.
  • ewfinfo; which shows the metadata in EWF files.
  • ewfmount; which FUSE mounts EWF files.
  • ewfrecover; special variant of ewfexport to create a new set of EWF files from a corrupt set.
  • ewfverify; which verifies the storage media data in EWF files.
