'''The Sleuth Kit''' (TSK) is a collection of [[UNIX]]-based command line tools that allow you to investigate a computer. The current focus of the tools is the file and volume systems and TSK supports [[FAT]], [[Ext2]]/[[Ext3|3]], [[NTFS]], [[UFS1]], and [[UFS2]] [[file system]]s.

The Sleuth Kit is arranged in layers. There is a ''data layer'' which is concerned with how information is stored on a disk and a ''metadata layer'' which is considered with information such as [[inode]]s and [[directory|directories]]. The commands that deal with the data layer are prefixed with the letter ''d'', which the commands that deal with the metadata layer are prefixed with the letter ''i''.
+
 
+
Some of the commands in Sleuth Kit are:
+
 
+
; dcat
+
: Views the contents of a [[block]].
+
 
+
; dls
+
: Lists [[unallocated block]]s. Makes keyword searches more efficient. Gets a list of unallocated blocks.
+
 
+
; dcalc
+
: Tells you where an unallocated blocks are.
+
 
+
; dstat
+
: Details about a given block.
+
 
+
; icat
+
: View contents of a file given its inode value or [[cluster number]]. Doesn't list directories, lists the contents.
+
 
+
; ils
+
: Lists the files extents on a disk.
+
 
+
; istat
+
: Information about an inode number.
