Aaru is a fully featured media dump management solution. You usually know media dumps as disc images, disk images, tape images, etc.

With Aaru you can analyze a media dump, extract files from it (for supported filesystems), compare two of them, create them from real media using the appropriate drive, create a sidecar metadata with information about the media dump, and a lot of other features that commonly would require you to use separate applications.

To see last changes, check the changelog. To see list of pending things to do, check the TODO list.

If you want to contribute in any way please read the contributing guide.

Stable releases in Github. CI beta builds here.
