ETFS Tools  
Hello,
I have a need to open an Image file destined to a Flash device of an embeded system in order to extract corrupted files 
and replace them via FTP on the flash of an embeded system.

Is there such a tool?

The file does not seem t be an archive I can identify and I wonderd if there was a commonly used tool for opening QNX 
ETFS image files compressed or not?

Thanks.
Re: ETFS Tools  
The image file seems to be a RAW binary image of the actual ETFS file system

The first part of the file has 5 sections called:

filetable
badblks
counts
reserved1
reserved2
"the name of the image"


Are there any tools that can extract the files to a windows machine?

Thanks.

Keith,

You're right that it's a raw ETFS filesystem.  What you see are the first few inodes in every ETFS file. 

The only way to dump files out of an ETFS partition is by mounting the partition, and then extracting/replacing the 
files.  The only ways I can think of to do this are:

1. FTP to your target, and change the required files.

2. Transfer the raw image off the target, change it, and rewrite:
  a. Read the raw partition out of the target with etfsctl -R
  b. Mount it on a self-hosted machine with fs-etfs-ram
  c. Make whatever changes are necessary
  d. Erase the ETFS partition on the target with etfsctl -d <partition> -e
  e. Copy the new image onto the target with etfsctl -W
