Hi Groovicus,

You might want to take a look at the Sleuth Kit. I discovered the tool after being recommended a book on this forum - File System Forensic Analysis.


Hope everyone has a good holiday, bye Smile.

This site will walk you through step-by-step how files are only marked for deleted, not really deleted, how files span multiple clusters, and also file fragmentation. It will walk you through using a hex editor.

I prefer NTFS,because for most users running Windows XP, NTFS is the obvious choice. It's more powerful and offers security advantages not found in systems.Any programs or other data file that must be accessed by more than one operating system on that computer should be stored on a FAT16 or FAT32. But should keep in mind that we have no security for data on a FAT32 or FAT16 volume, any person with computer access can read, modify or even delete any file that is stored on a FAT16 or FAT32.
