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.
