Display details of a file system data unit (i.e. block or sector)
blkstat [-f fstype ] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] [-b dev_sector_size] [-vV] image [images] addr
blkstat displays the allocation status of the given data unit. blkstat was called dstat in TSK versions prior to 3.0.0.
Specify the file system type. Use '-f list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
Identify the type of image file, such as raw. Use '-i list' to list the supported types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.
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.
Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr
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 automatically.
Address to display stats on. This is a fragment for UNIX file systems or a sector for FAT.
