LibCarvPath is a library designed to be used by carving and file system analysis tools. LibCarvPath allows fragments represented by offset and size to be combined in a CarvPath annotation that take the form of file system paths. LibCarvPath addresses the limits of file system paths by mapping extremely fragmented files to a uniquely identifying key in a long-path database.

The following tools use LibCarvPath and/or CarvPath Annotations:

Next to these, in Photorec work has started to include LibCarvPath support.
