SSDs Cause Crisis For Digital Forensics

Data Storage

rifles only writes “Firmware built into many solid state drives (SSDs) to improve their storage efficiency could be making forensic analysis at a later date by police forces and intelligence agencies almost impossible to carry out to legally safe standards, Australian researchers have discovered. They found that SSDs start wiping themselves within minutes after a quick format (or a file delete or full format) and can even do so when disconnected from a PC and rigged up to a hardware blocker.” So either SSDs are really hard to erase, or really hard to recover. I’m so confused.
