In this assignment, you assume the role of a forensic investigator of the DigiFirm Investigation Company. The company has been asked to recover blueprint files from a hard disk that a disgruntled employee reformatted. The computer is an ordinary laptop that was running Windows, and no backup is available.
You can use a few built-in tools to recover deleted files from a Windows operating system (OS). However, there are also third-party tools that might be helpful. Before beginning any data recovery endeavor, it is a good idea to research your options and plan your approach.
For this assignment, you are to:
- Locate two third-party tools that will assist you in the data recovery. Write a professional report that includes a data recovery plan outline, listing the steps to be performed and the Windows and third-party tools to be used in recovering the data in the order of their importance.
