ACE Lab Organised a Free Webinar for Data Recovery Engineers and Digital Forensics Experts in France

The renewed limitations in many countries are not an excuse to miss regular autumn events in the data recovery and digital forensics fields. They are the reason to conduct more online activities! That’s why we have cooperated with our partner in France – TRACIP SAS – and organised the online webinar last week.

This time we dedicated our presentation to TRIM on modern Western Digital SMR HDDs. Previously this command has been representing a huge obstacle on Solid State Drives only. Being active by default, it turns all deleted data into zeroes in 24 hours, so you cannot recover any data or evidence from such storage media devices. Recently, the HDD vendors picked up this approach and started to use TRIM that erases the second level translator in Hard Disk Drives with the Shingled Magnetic Recording Technology (e.g. Western Digital).

The attendees of the webinar found out how to solve the TRIM issue on SSDs and learned some tips on how to get partial content from SMR HDDs that have this command.

ACE Lab continues to research WD SMR drives and enhance existing solutions for recovering TRIMed data. If you have any questions regarding this topic or have some exact cases, do not hesitate to contact our Technical Support Department!
