File Carving and File Recovery with DiskDigger

DiskDigger is a tool that allows you to recover deleted files off of a FAT or NTFS drive. It has two modes of operation: In the first it merely looks in the FAT/MFT to find files marked as deleted, in much the same way that the tool called Restoration does. In the 2nd mode it does a file carve down the drive looking at the raw bits and finding the know headers and footers of various file types, much like PhotoRec. While PhotoRec seems a little more powerful, DiskDigger is easier to use and its preview functionality is quite nice. This video will cover the basics of recovering deleted files with DiskDigger.
