In this assignment, you assume the role of a forensic investigator of the DigiFirm Investigation Company. The company has been asked to recover blueprint files from a hard disk that a disgruntled employee reformatted. The computer is an ordinary laptop that was running Windows, and no backup is available.
You can use a few built-in tools to recover deleted files from a Windows operating system (OS). However, there are also third-party tools that might be helpful. Before beginning any data recovery endeavor, it is a good idea to research your options and plan your approach.
For this assignment, you are to:
â— Locate two third-party tools that will assist you in the data recovery. Write a professional report that includes a data recovery plan outline, listing the steps to be performed and the Windows and third-party tools to be used in recovering the data in the order of their importance.
â— Your report is required to be 4-5 pages in length. Your report must adhere to APA style guidelines, citing references as appropriate.
It is strongly encouraged that you submit all assignments to the TurnItIn Originality Check prior to submitting it to your instructor for grading. If you are unsure how to submit an assignment to the Originality Check tool, review the TurnItIn Originality Check â€“ Student Guide.
