FTK Image Properties
obtained an AD1 image and it was compressed. I have been asked by an individual to obtain the uncompressed size of the image. Tried to open in FTK Imager under the view tab, clicked properties. However, it only gives me size on individual folders and some folders register as zero file size when I know there are PDF's in the folder. I am currently running against File Size 8 to get the size. Aside from digging back in to the server where the image came from, sure could use some suggestions.
Reacquire the image uncompressed? Open the compressed AD1, reacquire all the files within (metadata and all should be maintained), then either provide the size or the actual uncompressed container. I don't really understand the reason for the individual's request but that will provide the solution. It's like asking for the size of a zip at different compression levels, you won't know the answer until you do each one.
Also, the folder size might be zero but the content of the folder is not necessarily zero.
Try mounting the AD1 image as a drive instead of viewing it. FTK Imager or Mount Image Pro should be able to mount an AD1,
Just mount the AD1 in FTK Imager as you have done and then image the contents uncompressed to another AD1 or whatever container you prefer to use. Then the size is the size.
But I agree, this is a slightly boneheaded question to begin with. Did it come from a lawyer by any chance? lol
@REDCAT… LOL… a project manager and a lawyer ! ! ! ! LOL
