LibCarvPathRepository is a library that provides the low level functionality for creating and using a (single, large, growing, sparse) file as an archive of (forensic) media images and other files. LibCarvPathRepository is to be used in conjunction with CarvFS. The CarvFS "raw" module is growing archive aware, making it possible to add (forensic) media images to a mounted raw archive. The LibCarvPathRepository library provides the low level multi-process safe API for appending an entity to the growing archive. Blocks of NULL data are automatically converted to sparse content to keep down the disk usage of the archive. After the image has been added to the archive, the library provides the carvpath of the newly entered image within the archive, making it possible to hand this carvpath to other carvfs aware tools.
