    Un-friking-believable... Is there a person alive with an IQ over 10 who actually believes this BS?

    I'm waiting to see one post in this thread. No doubt there will be at least one. Should we start a pool on who it's gonna be?

    I wonder what exactly they mean?
    Does anyone know what the IRS actually said?
    I may be wrong.

    Do you have a cite for this actually being done--someone pulling data off of a drive which has been wiped as you say?
    Or just one where someone idly speculates that this sort of thing may be theoretically possible?
    I may be wrong.

    According to the IRS, the computer crash in question occurred in 2011, prior to the the targeting scandal coming to light, and though Lerner attempted to have the hard drive in questions salvaged, IT staff were unable to recover the data because sectors of the drive had gone bad.

    It's certainly possible for this to be true, but it points toward some mismanagement or negligence on the part of the IT crew.
    Generally accepted practices prevent just this sort of thing from happening.
    I wonder what there data retention policies are.
    I may be wrong.

    Come on now.

    This is the "most transparent" regime in the history of man kind. Look at that, so willing to admit their little computer crashed and they have nothing to support their transparency so just believe them and move on - nothing here to see.

    seems the ones unavailable to the irs were the ones set to the white house
    would seem the white house computers should be able to fill in the gap
    unless they take a que from dicknbush and pretend that information is also unavailable to them:

    I served as a court appointed drive recovery specialist on one case. It's not something I do every day (thank God), but it wasn't difficult at all, just takes time and tools that are readily available.

    Plus, if you look into it you'll find the tech companies use drive shredders to guard against that. Even a BFM (big ****in' magnet) isn't considered as enough anymore.

    You dont know how hard drives work do you? Ok here is a link WARNING there is a bit of disinfo here as well but then the last option on how to truly "wipe" a hard drive is a bit down they write over the file 35 TIMES yes 35 TIMES. because just formatting a disk one time will not "wipe" the .gov recommends formatting 3 TIMES, the actual way to do it is to destroy the hard drive. It never gets erased truly.

    3 Ways to Permanently Erase Data Off a Hard Drive - wikiHow

    Mac OS X

    Permanent Eraser: Can be used as an alternative to the "Secure empty trash" option. It overwrites the files 35 times.

    Why 35 times? wouldnt just delete work? well no or how about format? well no LOL
    Notice how they OVERWRITE IT 35 TIMES? lol seriously 35 TIMES? guess three was not enough.

    when you DELETE a file it just removes the file location from memory, if some thing overwrites it well means nothing really.
