Scientists announce incredible data recovery breakthrough

Scientists announce incredible data recovery breakthrough

Leading scientists have announced a new technique for data recovery which is set to revolutionize the way forensic examiners uncover hidden data. Instead of creating a bit-level image of a hard disk using expensive hardware, researchers have discovered that ordinary sticky tape can be used to make a forensically sound copy of data from an exposed disk platter. Once the tape has been removed from the platter surface the data can then be quickly and safely transferred to another medium, such as a Post-It note, for storage and analysis. Chief engineer at the laboratory where the breakthrough took place, Joe King, also revealed today that his team is working on an even more advanced method to increase the data transfer rate of this new technique. There are few details at the moment but unofficial sources have hinted that double-sided tape may be involved.
