Description

Even though you are the only person using a computer, you are not the only one writing to your disk drive! Surprisingly your disk drive contains a lot of juicy information that can reveal a lot of secrets and history about what you did in the past. There are also places where data can be deliberately hidden by malicious software and it would be great to know what those are and how to pull information from them. We look at the places used by the system to perform its internal operations as well. Come and see what kind of information is stored on your disk drive as without this you will never be sure how to protect it! Have a cup of coffee before attending as your brain will be melted! You are welcome!

    Paula's sessions are always the best, but in this one she talks very fast, it may be beneficial to slow down the playback in settings for some parts if you want to follow along without having to rewind multiple times.

    I watch Paula on "fast" speed while listening to Icelandic Death Metal
