Announcement Date : January 1, 2001

TCTUTILs provides tools that list the file and directory name structures in the file system and map structures in different layers of the file system. For example, identifying which file has allocated a given inode and which inode has allocated a given block.

Autopsy is developed at the same time as a graphical interface to TCT and TCTUTILs, because the two command line tools are tedious to use when analyzing an entire file system image. An HTML-based tool, Autopsy executes the appropriate TCT and TCTUTILs commands, parses the output, and presents it in an HTML browser.
