Task – Finding LDM metadata objects using a disk editor

In this task, you are offered to download two image files of disks formatted with the LDM partitioning scheme. For each disk image file, you need to:

  1. find all the PRIVHEADs and think about the optimal search strategy,
  2. find all the VBLK blocks. Since VBLK blocks are arranged sequentially on a disk, just write down the addresses of the first and last VBLK blocks. Similar to the previous case, think about the optimal search strategy.

For this task, use either a disk editor built-in ReclaiMe Pro or any other disk editor of choice.
