Official Mirror: is designed to fully parse the MFT file from an NTFS filesystem and present the results as accurately as possible in a format that allows further analysis with other tools. At present, it parses the attributes from a $MFT file to produce the following output: Record Number Good - if the entry is valid Active - if the entry is active Record type - the type of record Record Sequence - the sequence number for the record Parent Folder Record Number Parent Folder Sequence Number For the standard information attribute: Creation date Modification date Access date Entry date For up to four file name records: File name Creation date Modification date Access date Entry date Object ID Birth Volume ID Birth Object ID Birth Domain ID And flags to show if each of the following attributes is present: Standard Information, Attribute List, Filename, Object ID, Volume Name, Volume Info, Data, Index Root, Index Allocation, Bitmap, Reparse Point, EA Information, EA, Property Set, Logged Utility Stream Notes/Log - Field used to log any significant events or observations relating to this record std-fn-shift - Populated if anomaly detection is turned on. Y/N. Y indicates that the FN create date is later than the STD create date. usec-zero - Populated if anomaly detection is turned on. Y/N. Y indicates that the STD create date's microsecond value is zero. For each entry in the MFT a record is written to an output file in CSV format. Major contributions from Matt Sabourin.
