When one uses &ldquo;Delete&rdquo; (or Shift-Delete) to delete a file, I understand that it is not really deleted, one only deletes its&nbsp; &ldquo;pointer&rdquo; that tell the OS where the file is. The file itself is still in the hard disk, and that is why one sometimes can recover it with the appropriate software.<br /> What happens if instead of deleting a file, one uses the MOVE command to move it to <em><strong>a different</strong></em> disk? Is the file in its original place still recoverable as when it is deleted?<br /> Many thanks</p> <p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/delete-vs-move" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/delete-vs-move#comments Chatter Mon, 02 Jan 2017 13:25:43 +0000 ernesto17 1056862 at http://www.dvforums.com Happy New year http://www.dvforums.com/forums/happy-new-year-10 <p>An advanced &#39;Happy New Year&#39; greeting to you and yours and everyone you know, and everyone that they know.</p> <h2> <strong>To One and all</strong></h2> <p><img alt="" /><img src="http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee209/38fergie/IMG_0059%20Cropped_zpsducy2p9t.jpg" alt="" class="bb-image" />" /&gt;</p> <div> <strong>Man to Man, the world o&#39;er,<br /> Shall brothers be for a&#39; that.</strong></div> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/happy-new-year-10#comments Chatter Sun, 25 Dec 2016 22:22:16 +0000 Fergie 1056852 at http://www.dvforums.com Christmas Greetings. http://www.dvforums.com/forums/christmas-greetings <p>Merry Christmas to all you stalwarts who still visit this site. <img alt="laugh" height="20" src="http://www.dvforums.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/teeth_smile.gif" title="laugh" width="20" /></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/christmas-greetings#comments Chatter Tue, 20 Dec 2016 21:43:41 +0000 Tony Carter 1056850 at http://www.dvforums.com
