SYNOPSISreglookup-recover [options] registry-file
DESCRIPTIONreglookup-recover attempts to scour a Windows registry hive for deleted data structures and outputs those found in a CSV-like format.
OPTIONSreglookup-recover accepts the following parameters:
- Verbose output.
- Enables the printing of a column header row. (default)
- Disables the printing of a column header row.
- Display cells which could not be interpreted as valid registry structures at the end of the output.
- Do not display cells which could not be interpreted as valid registry structures. This is the default behavior.
- Display raw cell contents for cells which were interpreted as intact data structures. This additional output will appear on the same line as the interpreted data.
- Do not display raw cell contents for cells which were interpreted as intact data structures. This is the default behavior.
- Required argument. Specifies the location of the registry file to read. The system registry files should be found under: %SystemRoot%/system32/config.
OUTPUTreglookup-recover generates a comma-separated values (CSV) like output and writes it to stdout. For more information on the syntax of the general format, see reglookup(1).
This tool is new and the output format, particularly the included columns, may change in future revisions. When this format stablizes, additional documentation will be included here.
EXAMPLESTo dump the recoverable contents of a system registry hive:
Extract all available unallocated data, including unparsable unallocated space and the raw data associated with parsed cells in a user-specific registry:
reglookup-recover -r -l '/mnt/win/c/Documents and Settings/user/NTUSER.DAT'
BUGSThis program has been smoke-tested against most current Windows target platforms, but a comprehensive test suite has not yet been developed. (Please report results to the development mailing list if you encounter any bugs. Sample registry files and/or patches are greatly appreciated.)
This program is new as of RegLookup release 0.9.0 and should be considered unstable.
