Pure conjecture: If they are storing a hash of the key/password (hard
not to), and using a secure algorithm (one would hope), then just wiping
the key/password should be sufficent to render everything else
irrecoverable. (For bonus points, store the key/password in flash. Good
luck recovering wiped

Nice article, Kurt, but this issue is not confined to just NTFS
formatted volumes. With Windows, and other operating systems,
propensity to create temp files and use memory paging, I would never
trust a wiping application to remove all evidences of a file by just
wiping the file itself. A complete

GUID Partition Table (GPT) Recovery 2006-10-31
Thomas Matthews (thomas lagged ca)

Hello all,

I am interested to know if any of you out there have been successful at recovering a GPT volume. The "partition style" as listed under the Volume tab within the disk device properties states "GUID Partition Table (GPT)".

I am working with a Promise VTrak M500p SCSI RAID device usin

I agree. It is more of a myth then reality. Physically, the magnetic fluxes have been changed when the data is overwritten. Then, only the new data patterns will be read. Although it may seem possible, I have never seen or heard of it being done successfully. All of the data recovery companies I've

My impression of this article is a non-expert piece aimed at consumer-level users with little knowledge of sophistication in computers. The cases he cites are all simple slack-space or unallocated-space recovery after simple file operations. It has nothing to do with "disk erasing programs". The

Do a search on "magnetic force microscopy" - this sounds like the technique you were talking about.

I am looking for an article I read sometime between 2002 and 2005. The content discussed how a research lab (maybe MIT or another large tech university) was able to recover data from a hard drive after over 50 formats (or it may have been data overwrites or even a combination of both) (I seem to rem

Many thanks to many private contributors. We do not have Seagate evidence,

Hello,

Does somebody know how to understand "Date Code" on Seagate disk ?
For example "06212" (on a recent Barracuda 7200.7) ?
How to decode it, and what does this "Date" means ?

Thanks
