Detecting if someone used a disk wipe / secure erase program
Posted on 2008-09-30
I was recently on a tech call to try and recover some missing files from a small office that had a laptop returned to them from an employee that recently left, but apparently deleted all of their work files. I was unable to find any ms office documents and was wondering if there were any programs that can detect if a disk wiper was used? As this is a small office, they won't be sending the drive away for any expensive file recovery services (they'll live without the files), but they were curious to see if the employee had used a disk wipe program.
