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

With DiscImageChef 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.

DiscImageChef should work under any operating system where there is Mono or .NET Framework. It has been tested using Mono 5.0 and .NET Framework 4.6.1. However recommended versions are Mono 5.8 and .NET Framework 4.7.1. .NET Core is unsupported.
