Windows Gather Dump Recent Files lnk Info

The dumplinks module is a modified port of Harlan Carvey's Perl script. This module will parse .lnk files from a user's Recent Documents folder and Microsoft Office's Recent Documents folder, if present. Windows creates these link files automatically for many common file types. The .lnk files contain time stamps, file locations, including share names, volume serial numbers, and more.
