One question, with now the SSD on the Macbook air, does that mean that undelete isn't working anymore ?



I mean, when you delete a file, is it now REALLY deleted ? So no one ever could get the data anymore ? I'm refering to the undelete tools that are availble on the market..



for me that would be good news...

    I reckon data recovery will come in time as recovery firms get familiar with the way the drives operate. Backup solutions are the best bet and SSD shouldn't need recovery nearly as much:

    SSDs delete files the same as HDDs do. They delete the directory entries. The files are still there, without markers to point to them, just like in a hard drive. You still need to perform a secure delete if that's the level of security you need, especially if your name is Edison Chen.



    OT: I feel sorry for Edison. He and I both like taking naughty photos. But I'll be taking naughty photos of my wife tonight. No one in the world will ever trust him to take naughty photos again.
