In what looks like a CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) setup, A*Star shows off its digital forensic evidence and file recovery technology. A spokersperson explained that the files are stored in fragmentation on the hard disk, and contrary to popular belief, files do not disappear when deleted but become shreds of unrelated memory.
Contrasted with "state-of-the-art", commercially-available technology seen on the right, which is only able to recover two-thirds of a deleted image, A*STAR's technology is able to completely recover a deleted file. A*Star achieves this through its "patent-pending technology" using a novel algorithm with more complex scenarios, she said.
