Follow up is even more interesting than epilogue,
"Another problem with the article is the fact that
a magnetic force microscope, which is a scanning
probe microscope, is nothing like an electron
microscope, and yet the article repeatedly refers to
using an electron microscope to try and recover data
(the same mistake has also been pointed out by
others). So saying "the chances of recovery of any
amount of data from a drive using an electron
microscope are negligible" is quite true, in the
same way that saying "the chances of recovery
of any amount of data from a drive using an
optical microscope are negligible" is true"
And DiskStroyer kit made me chuckle.
If I comprehend it correctly, that doesn't
make Gutmann method obsolete in principle,
it only means that those passes were tailored at
(various) old technology, and on modern drives
could be bit overkill and just as good as random
That's still makes a robust procedure, even If
overkill and dated (which isn't exactly bad
Thanks for replies.
