 Foremost: a Linux computer forensics tool

"Written by agents in the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Foremost can read through files and file headers on PCs or copied PC hard disk images. The tool scans a drive or drive image for pre-defined file types or specific text strings, which are defined in a configuration file. Foremost can be used to recover entire files, or partial file fragments from a damaged disk as well as from deleted files on a hard drive. When the program finds files, it copies the file header and data to a file on the local Linux machine."
