Description: Salvaging data stored on damaged media, such as hard drives or disks. When deleteting a file Windows only removes the file from the file system table which keeps track of all the files on your hard drive. The actual data is not removed and will remain on your hard drive until overwritten by a new file. Because of this, you can often restore files that have deleted by using special undelete software. If the file has been overwritten or if your hard drive is physically damaged, you can often recover much of the data by using more advanced tools. This process is rather expensive and can be avoided by doing regular backups.
