Free .5mb Disk Investigator Examines Raw Hard Drive Data
Posted by keelynet on January 16, 2009
This could be really handy for cleaning up all histories.
“Using the tool is enormously more intensive than a casual Windows search or even using an indexer like Google Desktop. Searching for a string like “password” will reveal every single instance of the word throughout the entire disk inside code, help files, documents, where ever it may be found. If you’re at your wits end trying to recover a deleted file or mine the depths of your computer for something that is stubbornly resisting being found, if it exists there is a strong chance Disk Investigator will turn it up. During my testing of the application, I was rather impressed with just how much it found. (Windows only ; 0.5 Mb freeware) / What is Disk Investigator? – Disk Investigator helps you to discover all that is hidden on your computer hard disk. It can also help you to recover lost data. Display the true drive contents by bypassing the operating system and directly reading the raw drive sectors. View and search raw directories, files, clusters, and system sectors. Verify the effectiveness of file and disk wiping programs. Undelete previously deleted files.” – Source
