I wonder how they were recovered? Didn't they swear up and down that all data was deleted/not accessible?

The files themselves were likely stored as metadata, with CRC time stamps, it would take many months to try and remove some bit of text,
and not violate the CRC bit counting algorithm.
First, let me say that this makes me happy. I gotta be honest, I was fairly certain this would all be swept under the rug as per business as usual.
Second, I agree, assume that any info being provided to the DOJ is going have missing parts. I mean, for starters, anyone who is not a complete blithering idiot knows about a variety of file retrieval methods from crashed HDs. Hell, I'm not even a remotely competent IT guy, and yet, I did the very same thing on my mac two or three years back to retrieve all of my digital photographs and music. I lost a grand total of.....NOTHING. Absolutely freaking nothing. In FACT, even the worms that had infected some of the files where still there, lol, according to my wife's scanner.
So what I want to know is, how hard of a time did the DOJ have of retrieving those emails? Like, how difficult was it? And if it was (likely) not difficult at all, can someone please be brought up on obstruction of justice?
And last, I eagerly await what's on those files...but with some trepidation. I can't help but feel that, as per the business as usual, nothing WILL come of this, even though we know SOMETHING is fishy.
