This is a simple GUI to FSCTL_GET_RETRIEVAL_POINTERS Microsoft API.

The idea is to read all clusters belonging to a file, then map these clusters on the logical drive where this file is located, and from there re assemble all clusters and save them to a new destination file.

Thanks to this method, one can save/copy a file which is in use since we « raw » read clusters from a logical drive.

This has been tested with success on \boot\bcd and \windows\system32\config\sam, files which you cannot copy in a « normal » mode.

Beware that using this method, you could end up with a corrupted dump since the file could be modified while you are reading it.

  1. Dump Extents doesn’t seem to work correctly on my SSD hardware, it either stalls or goes on endlessly.
