after recovering from a particularly bad drive problem (since fixed, i
think) i was left with a filesystem with a rather large "lost+found"
i've discovered that i can use "foremost" to sort those files into
filetype by examining their header information. this is great for
those filetypes foremost knows about. unfortunately, part of what's in
there are a lot of music files in m4a and itunes' m4p format.
are there any alternatives to foremost that can handle these
filetypes, or can anyone point me to a "foremost.conf" example that i
can use to try and teach foremost how to recover these files?
