  Description     : A MS Windows recycle bin analysis tool

Rifiuti2 is a rewrite of rifiuti, a great tool from Foundstone folks
for analyzing Windows Recycle Bin INFO2 file. Analysis of Windows
Recycle Bin is usually carried out during Windows computer
forensics. Rifiuti2 can extract file deletion time, original path
and size of deleted files and whether the deleted files have been
moved out from the recycle bin since they are trashed.  Rifiuti2
supports the INFO2 file format found in Windows up to Window XP
and the new file format found in Vista, and the program is fully

I'm one of the upstream developers of rifiuti2 (not the main
author) and I'm responsible for the maintenance of its debian package.

Rifiuti2 has all the functionalities of the existing rifiuti package,
thus obsoleting it.

There are two programs in this package, rifiuti and rifiuti-vista. As
the first program name conflicts with the one in the rifiuti package,
rifiuti and rifiuti2 can't co-exist. But if rifiuti2 is going to be
included into Debian, rifiuti can be removed from our ftp.

Thanks Christophe for your work on rifiuti package! If I noticed the
rifiuti's ITP earlier, we could avoid the duplication of work.
