Hello Dear Forum Users

There are very few books on the market about hard disks and other storage devices. I can't find any. The only one I can find is
Computer Forensics, investigating hard disks. I don't know why I can't find any more. Do you know some decent books on hard disks (sectors, bad sectors, hpa areas, MBR, the way data is stored, and so on...) ?

Do you recommend any?


Thx

I can't recommend any as i don't know of any book available with the topics you mention.

The best way to start is either by reading PC-3000 manuals and the topics here :

There's ReclaiMe's Logical Data Recovery book and their free online videos. There are also Ann LeFlore's books but they are rather dated and focus on SalvationData tools.

Yeah, I think the problem with books is that by the time one would be published much of the info would already be out of date. Data recovery is a field of constant research and study. I'd conservatively say I spend half my time working just doing research and trying to understand specific issues that arise. It's why forums about data recovery are so essential to being successful.
