Many hard drives have the capacity to store several hundred gigabytes, if not terabytes of data. They are used essentially everywhere- on every work, home, corporate, and school computer. As a result, they can be a gold mine of information in a digital investigation. Navigating so much data is not easy for the typical user, or even for law enforcement agencies. Luckily, TechFusion is highly skilled in a range of digital forensic investigations, including forensic hard drive recovery.
Our experts use forensic hard drive imaging and specialized tools to extract, identify, and analyze valuable pieces of information on a drive. We can even detect digital information that is hidden to a normal user or protected in a device. Our discoveries can be used to serve many purposes including criminal or civil litigation, corporate investigations, and insurance investigations.
With decades of experience, TechFusion has the range to work with internal hard drives, external hard drives, SATA drives, SSD drives, NVMe drives, or any other type of hard drive that may need investigating. We also have experience recovering data from physically damaged devices or data that has been maliciously deleted.

Forensic Hard Drive Imaging
To perform a forensic hard drive recovery, our technicians use forensic hard drive imaging to extract information from a device. A forensic image is an exact, unaltered digital copy of a drive that is extremely useful in any forensics investigation. It’s important for technicians to create an image for analysis because it ensures that the original device is not tampered with throughout the investigation. While creating an image, our technicians use a write-blocker to preserve the original device’s integrity.
