The libpff package contains Linux based library and applications to read PST, OST and PAB files.

It has been ported to other platforms like FreeBSD NetBSD OpenBSD Mac OS X and Windows as well.

History

Libpff was created by Joachim Metz in 2008, while working for Hoffmann Investigations.

Libpff is a rewrite of earlier work on the PST file format by the libpst project. Libpff was updated to be a shared library and support the OST and PAB files.

Currently libpff partially supports the data in PAB files.

Tools

The libpff package contains the following tools:

  • pffexport, which exports the items stored in PAB, PST and OST (PFF) files
  • pffinfo, which shows information about PFF files.
  • pffrecover, which exports recovered items stored in PAB, PST and OST (PFF) files
