<b>PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU EDIT THE LISTS BELOW</b><br>
+
= Partition Recovery =
Events should be posted in the correct section, and in date order.  An event should NEVER be listed in more than one section (i.e. Ongoing/Continuous events should not be listed in Scheduled Training).  When events begin the same day, events of a longer length should be listed first.  New postings of events with the same date(s) as other events should be added after events already in the list. If a provider offers the same event at several locations simultaneously, the listing should have a single (ONE) entry in the list with the date(s) and ALL locations for the event. Please use three-letter month abbreviations (i.e. Sep, NOT Sept. or September), use two digit dates (i.e. Jan 01 NOT Jan 1), and use date ranges rather than listing every date during an event(i.e. Jan 02-05, NOT Jan 02, 03, 04, 05).<br>
+
<i>Some events may be <u>limited</u> to <b>Law Enforcement Only</b> or to a specific audience.  Such restrictions should be noted when known.</i>

This is a BY DATE listing of upcoming events relevant to [[digital forensics]]. It is not an all inclusive list, but includes most well-known activities. Some events may duplicate events on the generic [[conferences]] page, but entries in this list have specific dates and locations for the upcoming event.

* "fdisk /mbr" restores the boot code in the [[Master boot record]], but not the partition itself. On newer versions of Windows you should use fixmbr, bootrec or mbrfix. You can also extract a copy of the specific standard MBR code from tools like bootrec.exe and diskpart.exe in Windows (from various offsets) and copy it to disk with dd (Use bs=446 count=1). For Windows XP SP2 c:\%WINDIR%\System32\diskpart.exe the MBR code is found between offset 1b818h and 1ba17h.

DiskInternals NTFS Recovery is a fully automatic utility that recovers data from damaged or formatted disks.
Gpart is a tool which tries to guess the primary partition table of a PC-type hard disk in case the primary partition table in sector 0 is damaged, incorrect or deleted.
TestDisk is OpenSource software and is licensed under the GNU Public License (GPL).
