Winregfs is a FUSE-based filesystem driver that enables accessing of Windows registry hive files as ordinary filesystems. Registry hive file editing can be performed with ordinary shell scripts and command-line tools once mounted.

fsck.winregfs scans a Windows registry hive file for problems that indicate the hive has been damaged by hardware or software issues, reading recursively the key and value data structures in the registry hive.

This package provides mount.winregfs and fsck.winregfs commands. Winregfs is useful for pentesters, ethical hackers and forensics experts.
