    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.
    Debian Jessie x86_64 & armhf :: LibreELEC is the solution for your Linux-based HTPC setups.

    I believe the problem is os-independent...
