Summary : Data Recovery and Digital Forensics can be an extremely time consuming process, leading to expensive and extremely limited options for those looking to get their data back off a broken drive, or investigate data on another’s drive. The two fields have a lot of common ground, with many of the same time-consuming and boring steps, even for experienced professionals. We demonstrate and disclose Tomb Raider, a tool developed from this need for a faster and more automated way, while poring over dozens of dumpster-dived hard drives in search of treasures and curiousities.
