mmls - Display the partition layout of a volume system (partition tables)


mmls [-t mmtype ] [-o offset ] [ -i imgtype ] [-b dev_sector_size] [-BrvV] [-aAmM] image


mmls displays the layout of the partitions in a volume system, which include partition
tables and disk labels.


-t mmtype
Specify the media management type. Use '-t list' to list the supported types. If
not given, autodetection methods are used.

-o offset
Specify the offset into the image where the volume containing the partition system
starts. The relative offset of the partition system will be added to this value.

-b dev_sector_size
The size, in bytes, of the underlying device sectors. If not given, the value in
the image format is used (if it exists) or 512-bytes is assumed.

-i imgtype
Identify the type of image file, such as raw. Use '-i list' to list the supported
types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.

-B Include a column with the partition sizes in bytes

-r Recurse into DOS partitions and look for other partition tables. This setup
frequently occurs when Unix is installed on x86 systems.

-v Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr

-V Display version

-a Show allocated volumes

-A Show unallocated volumes

-m Show metadata volumes

-M Hide metadata volumes

image [images]
The disk or partition image to read, whose format is given with '-i'. Multiple
image file names can be given if the image is split into multiple segments. If
only one image file is given, and its name is the first in a sequence (e.g., as
indicated by ending in '.001'), subsequent image segments will be included

´mmls´ is similar to 'fdisk -lu' in Linux with a few differences. Namely, it will show
which sectors are not being used so that those can be searched for hidden data. It also
gives the length value so that it can be plugged into 'dd' more easily for extracting the
partitions. It also will show BSD disk labels for Free, Open, and NetBSD and will display
the output in sectors and not cylinders. Lastly, it works on non-Linux systems.

If none of -a, -A, -m, or -M are given then all volume types will be listed. If any of
them are given, then only the types specified on the command line will be listed.

Allocated volumes are those that are listed in a partition table in the volume system AND
can store data. Unallocated volumes are virtually created by mmls to show you which
sectors have not been allocated to a volume. The metadata volumes overlap the allocated
and unallocated volumes and describe where the partition tables and other metadata
structures are located. In some volume systems, these structures are in allocated space
and in others they are in unallocated space. In some volume systems, their location is
explicitly given in the partition tables and in others they are not.


To list the partition table of a Windows system using autodetect:

# mmls disk_image.dd

To list the contents of a BSD system that starts in sector 12345 of a split image:

# mmls -t bsd -o 12345 -i split disk-1.dd disk-2.dd

Use mmls online using onworks.net services
