The extent of most people’s forensic knowledge of electronic devices comes from watching television and movies. We often see phones are damaged, dramatically, in order to destroy evidence. Whereas this makes an excellent plot twist, the truth is actually much more dramatic—in most cases, data recovery from damaged cellular phones and USB memory drives is possible.
ICFECI has the ability to “put Humpty Dumpty back together again.” Approximately 35% of cellular devices examined by ICFECI have been purposefully damaged. Other issues may involve accidental screen damage, water damage or electrical power damage to the cellular devices. Regardless, any damage, intentional or not more than likely will not prevent forensic recovery of data, texts, photos, browsing history and usage.
Depending on the degree of damage, teardowns for recovery of digital devices is doable. In addition, complete disassembly and reassembly of cellular phones, tablets, computers, and USB memory sticks, albeit complicated, generally yield the secrets of the device.
