Forensic is usually mentioned with crime, but here its not. Digital forensics is a branch of science which deals with the recovery and investigation of materials found in digital devices.

Normally when people want to delete a file, we will use the standard features the coming with the operating systems. We think that its permanently deleted and can’t be recover any more.
