Alarming Discovery: Millions Of Deleted Files Recovered From Purchased Hard Drives

Secure Data Recovery, a renowned data recovery specialist, has conducted an exclusive project for TechRadar Pro, uncovering a startling discovery: millions of deleted files have been successfully recovered from hard drives purchased online.

The company acquired 100 hard drives at random (excluding solid-state drives and memory cards) and implemented reasonable data recovery techniques to assess their findings — it is worth noting that they did not invest resources into recovering data from damaged or encrypted secure drives, as those cases were deemed salvageable.
