CarvFs is a modular Fuse based user space file system on top of LibCarvPath. CarvFS makes CarvPath style annotations as used by LibCarvPath available as files. Using CarvFs makes it possible to process carved entities as files without the need for copy-out.

CarvFs is modular with respect to access to image files. The CarvFs distribution comes with a default module for access to (split) raw files.

A separate Libewf module is available for access to EWF images.
