I often see where some poor guy/girl has had his/her hard drive seized and all the info on it looked into, usually resulting in some form of prosecution following discovery of porn, unauthorized website access while on the job, etc. My question is, and please answer in very simple terms as I am not a computer whiz, how is the information gotten off the hard drive? Why can't I look on my own harddrive and see what "they" will see? Will reformating a hard drive erase the old info?
I've read where sometimes the info found on a hard drive is several years old. Why wasn't it designed to automatically erase this stuff after a period of time? And lastly. Do they ever fill up?
