Recovering and Deleting Files


Welcome to Module 10 of the Computer Hacking and Forensics course. This module introduces and discusses Recovering and Deleting Files, and begins discussing the differences target sources where files live and the how to recover data files from each of them and what key tools should be used for each of your targeted sources.

You’ll learn the benefits of configuring the computing environment with a particularly discussion on the Master File Table (MFT), what it entails and how it works.  We discuss in details the inner workings of the MFT, what content it holds, how to manage files within it and how to recover links to files emptied from the recycle bin.

You’ll learn the differences in the variety of free and paid recovery tools, validating their use, how they work, and recommendations on what to use.

The hands on demonstrations you’ll engage as part of the Recovering and Deleting Files module include the following labs:

  • DDR Professional Recovery Lab
  • File Scavenger Lab
  • Handy Recovery Lab
  • Necleus Kernal Lab
  • testdisk Lab
  • Total Recall Lab
