Hey there Shawn,

I did some very cursory research on my end and found a very nice blog post
that lists a few options for file carving out of PCAPS. judging by the fact
you've customized base to suit your needs, You'd probably more than
comfortable finding a way to automate these tools for automatic file


Sorry I'm not able to offer more help, but I'm at the end of my rope as it

Hope this helps.
