I would like to learn more about data recovery. I'm not interested in things that are not possible to do at home, like platter removal etc. I AM interested in when things like the MBR becomes corrupted, or the like, when the chance of retrieval is high with software alone, how to go about it. Links, names of good books, recommendations about software, etc., all appreciated.
I've done a lot of reading over the past few days so please give meaty answers.
I know about all the "known' software like Ontrack, GetDataBack, R-Studio, etc. I'm looking for recommendations for those software, or one's that I've missed, backed with reasons or personal experience. I've searched for books, both online or off, and haven't gotten any that appear halway decent so anything in that area would be appreciated as well.
