foremost - Recover files by "carving" them from a raw disk
Foremost recovers files files based on their headers, footers, and internal data structures. This process is commonly referred to as data carving. Foremost can work on a raw disk drive or image file generated by dd. The headers and footers can be specified by a configuration file or you can use command line switches to specify built-in file types. These built-in types look at the data structures of a given file format allowing for a more reliable and faster recovery.
