Abstract:

Though there has been significant research into file carvers, there has been little comparison or validation of different file carvers. Such comparison and validation is vital if the state of the art is to progress. We present a methodology for comparing file carvers based on realistic data and present the results of applying the carver to the Foremost, Scalpel, PhotoRec, and Adroit, carvers.
