Mobile devices have a file structure different from computer hard drives. There are also a number of other important differences, including these:
- With a computer hard disk, the user can use readily available software to wipe out data permanently. This is not so with mobile phones. Deleted text and phone calls are likely to still be present on the mobile phone, but available only through forensic software.
- Emails generally can’t be recovered from cell phones.
- More data can be recovered from Android devices than from iPhones.
I’ve imaged and analyzed dozens of mobile phones and other devices. Turnaround is usually within a day.
