Wiping data from a BlackBerry

How good is the wipe of the data. If the device is lost and the date wiped, is it possible for someone to unwipe it or somehow recover the data?

Re: Wiping data from a BlackBerry

It is good enough for the FBI.

Is that good enough for you?

 

It does reset it to factory default and wipes(not deletes) all info on it.

Re: Wiping data from a BlackBerry

Possibly they might have been deleted on the memory card.

 

Using mass storage mode you might be able to use an undelete program to get them back.

 

If they were not backed up and you wipe it they are gone.

Re: Wiping data from a BlackBerry

I dont know what to say. If they are not in the backup and you wiped it, there are gone.

 

Did you try an undelete program on the memory card?
