Research on disk reliability and disk failure rates is relevant to computer forensics for several reasons:

  • Disk failures frequently make it difficult to recover data from a subject computer.
  • Because forensic practitioners use very large datasets, issues of disk drive reliability can have direct bearing on forensic readyness.
