    recovery of overwritten hard disk data


    Hi, a friend of mine just overwrote two months of her PhD thesis with an older version. I know recovery of overwritten data is possible, but wonder if i'd need special hardware to do it. Does anyone know something about this ?

    Thank You.

    you can try to use debugfs, if it's ext3 (I don't know if it works with ext2 or ReiserFS). It comes with Linux.
