    It's not very likely. If you were a computer forensics expert,
    you might be able to extract data from the swap file. Many
    live CDs use the swap file if one exists. But what would you
    look for? How would you distinguish between normal (your)
    raw data from abnormal data?

    If you have a mischievous roommate who uses your computer
    without permission, set the BIOS to not boot from CD
    or USB and put a password on the BIOS. That should slow
    him down a bit.

    uhm, my mean that I want use LiveCD and install lvm2 to mount a lvm2 partition on internal hard disk then copy all data on this partition to a external hard disk, and I don't want anyone know me has copied data. I'm not sure about installation lvm2 and copy will make any changes on this internal disk or not

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    Sorry, but we don't help users with cracking or breaking into other people's machines. If you are having problems with Linux, we might be able to help with that.
