affuse - provide access to AFF containers


affuse [<FUSE library options>] aff_image mount_point


Provide access to AFF containers, allowing several advanced operations. This file is part of the AFFLIBv3, that provides AFF. AFF is an open and extensible file format to store disk images and associated metadata. It is useful in several scenaries, as computer forensics investigations.


FUSE options: -d -o debug Enable debug output (implies in -f). -f Foreground operation. -s Disable multi-threaded operation. -o allow_other Allow access to other users. -o allow_root Allow access to root. -o auto_unmount Auto unmount on process termination. -o nonempty Allow mounts over non-empty file/dir. -o default_permissions Enable permission checking by kernel. -o fsname=NAME Set filesystem name. -o subtype=NAME Set filesystem type. -o large_read Issue large read requests (2.4 only). -o max_read=N Set maximum size of read requests. -o hard_remove Immediate removal (don't hide files). -o use_ino Let filesystem set inode numbers. -o readdir_ino Try to fill in d_ino in readdir. -o direct_io Use direct I/O. -o kernel_cache Cache files in kernel. -o [no]auto_cache Enable caching based on modification times (off). -o umask=M Set file permissions (octal). -o uid=N Sset file owner. -o gid=N Set file group. -o entry_timeout=T Cache timeout for names (1.0s). -o negative_timeout=T Cache timeout for deleted names (0.0s). -o attr_timeout=T Cache timeout for attributes (1.0s). -o ac_attr_timeout=T Auto cache timeout for attributes (attr_timeout). -o noforget Never forget cached inodes. -o remember=T Remember cached inodes for T seconds (0s). -o nopath Don't supply path if not necessary. -o intr Allow requests to be interrupted. -o intr_signal=NUM Signal to send on interrupt (10). -o modules=M1[:M2...] Names of modules to push onto filesystem stack. -o max_write=N Set maximum size of write requests. -o max_readahead=N Set maximum readahead. -o max_background=N Set number of maximum background requests. -o congestion_threshold=N Set kernel's congestion threshold. -o async_read Perform reads asynchronously (default). -o sync_read Perform reads synchronously. -o atomic_o_trunc Enable atomic open+truncate support. -o big_writes Enable larger than 4kB writes. -o no_remote_lock Disable remote file locking. -o no_remote_flock Disable remote file locking (BSD). -o no_remote_posix_lock Disable remove file locking (POSIX). -o [no_]splice_write Use splice to write to the fuse device. -o [no_]splice_move Move data while splicing to the fuse device. -o [no_]splice_read Use splice to read from the fuse device. Module options: [iconv] -o from_code=CHARSET Original encoding of file names (default: UTF-8). -o to_code=CHARSET New encoding of the file names (default: UTF-8). [subdir] -o subdir=DIR Prepend this directory to all paths (mandatory). -o [no]rellinks Transform absolute symlinks to relative.


Use fusermount -u mount_point, to unmount.
