Scalpel Overview

Scalpel is an open source data carving tool.

Scalpel is a file carving and indexing application that runs on Linux
and Windows. The first version of Scalpel, released in 2005, was
based on Foremost 0.69. There have been a number of internal releases
since the last public release, 1.60, primarily to support our own
research. The newest public release v2.0, has a number of additional
features, including:
o minimum carve sizes.
o multithreading for quicker execution on multicore CPUs.
o asynchronous I/O that allows disk operations to overlap with pattern
matching--this results in a substantial performance improvement.
o regular expression support for headers/footers.
o embedded header/footer matching for better processing of structured
file types that may contain embedded files.

As of 6/27/2013 Scalpel has been released under the Apache 2.0 License
and the source is available at The Sleuth Kit github repository.
