Abstract: Over the past decade, attorneys have come to recognize the valuable role computer forensics play in recovering key financial information from hard drives. But the increasing availability of the TRIM command in computer operating systems is poised to dramatically reshape the field of computer forensics. This article explains how the command purges data completely, so that not even remnants are left behind for experts to subsequently dig up and reassemble. But there are also ways to work around TRIM.
