Digital Photo EnScript
Does anyone have an EnScript that they are willing to share that can parse out digital photo files? I am looking for all digital photos on a drive where the file name of the image starts with DSC_ or EOS_ and end with a typical photo extension. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Try the Encase Message Boards (when they reopen) as they usually have this type of thing.
Have you tried taking the header and plugging it into a good data recovery program to get that specific file type back?
Winhex and Ontrack's software should both work nicely in your situation.
Surely you can do it by filtering or sorting well. You can create your own filter to just show .jpg's etc, then sort on the name and look for what you want. Obviously you're not going to find any renamed digital photo's, but then if you find some starting DSC or whatever, you can dig out the EXIF data showing the camera name and do a keyword search for that.
I did exactly what you just described. I used the scripts that parse out all .jpgs and exif data. The reason that I wanted to avoid this is becuase the owner of this machine is a professional photographer, and you can imagine the amount of digital images that the .jpg search uncovered. No one ever said this work is speedy anyway.
Isnt there a script included with version 5?
There's an EXIF Viewer script which seems to suggest that it will find all files with EXIF data, but it says "If found the data will be bookmarked" which sounds a bit different to all the files will be bookmarked. I've never used it and haven't got a job open at the moment to try it on so I can't really say what it does.
Mark, you're right, no one ever said this work was speedy, sometimes you've just got to knuckle down and get on with it (I hope that translates properly!!)
