As you are probably well aware Osama Bin Laden was killed last week and, during the operation, a significant amount of computer media was recovered.
Last week a gentleman from Radio 4 interview both Simon Steggles and myself to identify the problems that investigators may encounter. Sadly the interview wasn't used but the BBC have been kind enough to furnish us with a copy for your listening pleasure.
You can listen to the interview below.

I've been working at Disklabs for a few weeks now. I've mostly been confined to the digital forensics lab but I've been able to poke my head out from time to time and see what the data recovery department are up to. I'm happy for this opportunity as it has taught me some interesting things that are useful for computer forensics, and some things that are potentially dangerous.
Over the next few weeks I'll be posting articles about how data recovery has the potential to impact computer
