Recovery of Overwritten Hard Disk Data
Hi, a friend of mine just overwrote two months of her PhD thesis with an older version. I know recovery of overwritten data is possible, but wonder if I'd need special hardware to do it. Does anyone know something about this ? Thank You.

Stolen laptop had PhD research
Thirty-fve minutes spent in Langley’s Willowbrook Shopping Centre cost a Surrey woman much more than she had anticipated. Langley RCMP say that while she was shopping from 1-1:35 p.m. last Monday, someone broke into her vehicle and stole a number of items, including a Mac iBook laptop containing the research she had compiled as she worked towards her PhD. “All that information was on that computer and she has no back-up fle,” said Langley RCMP spokesman Cpl. Brenda Marshall.
