In a previous article, I showed how to setup a « proxy » for ImDisk thru devio to mount an EWF file.

This time, lets do it with a VHDI file (using external libyal library).

The command lines for the proxy and ImDisk are below :

To launch the proxy : devio –dll=proxy.dll;dllopen shm:test_proxy c:\test.vhd.

To use the proxy from ImDisk : imdisk -a -t proxy -o shm -o ro -f test_proxy -m Z: .

Been a while since last article.

A quick one to post a tool I have been using lately to quickly convert VMDK to raw disks.
Indeed it is sometimes easier/quicker to install an operating system in a virtual environement but afterwards you may want to convert the vmware disk (vmdk) to a raw disk so that you can write it to another physical media (usb, hard drive, etc).

Thanks to libvmdk, a library written by Joachim Metz, it is easy to write a quick graphical frontend that will read a vmdk and write it back to a raw image.

VMDK2RAW can be downloaded here.

In a previous article, I showed how to setup a « proxy » for ImDisk thru devio to mount an EWF file.

This time, lets do it with a QCOW file (using external libyal library).

The command lines for the proxy and ImDisk are below :

devio --dll=proxy.dll;dllopen shm:test_proxy c:\test.qcow
imdisk -a -t proxy -o shm -o ro -f test_proxy -m Z:

Find the proxy here : PROXY_QCOW .

In a previous article, I have shared a delphi unit for libewf.

Now lets code a proxy for ImDisk using that external libyal library to mount an EWF file.

I initially used this template from reboot.pro and came with the below basic delphi unit.

Once I had done that, it was pretty easy to fill in the missing parts to mount and EWF reusing my previous libewf delphi unit.
See code attached.proxy_EWF
