File carving guidedcarving

GuidedCarving is a File Carving technique to recover fragmented files introduced in Adroit Photo Forensics. GuidedCarving allows a user to attempt to recover a fragmented file that failed to fully recover using SmartCarving.


  • The user opens a photo that has failed to recover properly.
  • The user identifies the first error on a photo by clicking on it.
  • Adroit Photo Forensics then presents the user with the best possible block matches.
  • The user cycles through the presented blocks to find the correct continuation block.
  • User can then choose to either manually build the rest of the file or allow SmartCarving to take over again.
