Is there a way to browse through the image files?
is there a way to extract single files and folders out of the image files?
I found this on the net:
[QUOTE]partimage only copies used blocks so you need to restore to a device (in this case a block file loop mounted) – I have done this with FOG images as an experiment.[/QUOTE]
Do these using sudo/as root if required:
1. gunzip image file (force suffix with -S "") 2. partimage imginfo <imagefile> 3. dd if=/dev/zero of=<blockfile> bs=1024 count=0 seek=<size in GB*1024*1024> 4. losetup /dev/loop0 <blockfile> 5. partimage restore /dev/loop0 <imagefile> 6. sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/loop0 /media/temp/
Will this work?
i found something more:
Select allSelect allSelect allSelect all[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]mount -o ro /dev/loop0 mnt[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]5. and that is! You can now browse the files in the mnt directory.[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]Note that steps 2-4 have to be done as superuser (root).[/INDENT]
I think there is one step missing, because:
- create an empty file
- connect it to a loop device
- create mountpoint
- mount loop device/file to the mountpoint
-> 5) you see an empty filesystem
So between 2) and 4) one has to restore the partimage image to this filesystem… right?[/QUOTE]
Can someone tell if these steps are correct and working?
