  Description     : FAT32 explore, extract, repair, and forensic tool

fatcat is a tool to explore, extract, repair and forensic FAT32 filesystems
which i've named *fatcat*.

Its features:

   - Get information about FAT32 filesystem;
   - Explore FAT32 file system;
   - Read file or extract directories;
   - Retrieve file & directories that are deleted;
   - Backup & restore the FAT tables;
   - Hack the FAT table by writing on it;
   - Hack the entries by changing clusters and file sizes;
   - Perform a search for orphaned files & directories;
   - Compare and merge the FAT tables;
   - Repair unallocated directories &  files

I used it to repair & fix data coming from an actually broken hard drive

I've built a sample .deb:
