    file forensics: any way to recover moved file?


    Last night I moved--not copied--a file from my Dell Latitude Win 10 laptop's SSD to a thumb drive.

    To be precise, I think that I clicked on the file in Windows Explorer in the laptop, then cut it via ctrl-x, and then pasted it onto the flash drive with ctrl-v.

    I then safely ejected the thumb drive (I always do this), took it to my desktop, and to my horror found that the file was not on the thumb drive.

    Because I moved, not copied, the file, it was no longer in its original location on the laptop. It also is not in the laptop's Recycle Bin.

    My question: is the file still in some other location on the laptop, from which I can recover it?

    Or, when you move a file like this, does Windows immediately permanently delete it?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Some more details follow, if you are interested.

    The thumb drive is a Visiontek PRO 256 GB USB 3 drive.

    I do NOT have this problem with this thumb drive on my Dell T1700 Win 7 workstation.

    However, this is the second Dell laptop that I have seen this drive have this same problem with. My original laptop, a Dell Precision Win 7 machine would sometimes do this; that one got stolen in Rotterdam a month ago. The current laptop is a Dell Latitude Win 10 box.

    For some reason, there is a bad interaction between Dell laptops and this particular thumb drive. I tested another, cheaper, thumb drive on the Dell laptop and it worked fine.

    :)

    Computer Forensics

    There are tons of free software options you can get to start learning about Forensics. I actually just finished up my Masters in Information Security and Assurance and concentrated on Forensics and Ethical Hacking (something I have changed my mind to and want to get in the career field of) and OSF Forensics is pretty cool, TrueCrypt (yes) Wireshark, and others. I have a ton of links on IE 10 that I saved and I believe I have a list of links my professors gave me for forensics tools. There are free labs out there as well. Books can help you understand the programs and run steps with software to get the hang of it. However you will need to branch out and do things with the software (especially with Cell phones, that is so cool, lol) and read things from Ram, deleted files on a HDD ,etc.
