My company started using Blancco for SSD erasure and I was hesitant at first due to the reasons Ramhound expressed. We had one of their techs in on a call to explain exactly how they got around these issues. My understanding is that they use a proprietary software to breakdown the freezelocks, and if the software was unable to, it would say so in the report. ...

As Ramhound pointed out in the comment, files can become fragmented which means that they don't take up one contiguous space in a medium. When you delete the index to a file, the recovery program has to now look through the whole medium to find every piece to be able to put it together. This is for just one file. Imagine how long this process is for every ...

A file could be scattered in pieces on your disk. So when you delete the file, those pieces are still there but orphan of the entry on a table that permits to find them. To "undelete" the file it's needed to scan all the disk. When you format a disk you're erasing a table, not erasing the entire disk. After the format, the files are still there.

Probably you have flashed some boot USB or ISO image which have size of only 49MB. Open diskmgmt.msc and check if there is only 1 49MB partition, delete it and recreate the partition. Or use some partitioning tools like EaseUS Partition Master or MiniTool Partition Wizard to extend/recreate the partition

Did you try using a different computer to see if that solves the problem? Usually, flash drives are detected based on the amount of available space that can be used for reading/writing to the disk. You could try a full format once (not quick format), and then try formatting again to see if more space is available. Flash drive is the most generally accepted ...

(Nearly four years later, but I came across this in google). While TestDisk (listed above) should solve the problem of the missing partition, for the other disk where you just need to read the Linux files, the best solution I found was http://www.diskinternals.com/linux-reader/; It displayed files on a Linux disk clearly and simply and allowed copying to ...

Please read this answer completely before doing anything! Converting without data loss is possible. For the theory, read this. To do this, you need gdisk, AKA GPT fdisk. It’s contained on the GParted LiveCD, so I’ll go with that. After booting you’ll end up with a screen somewhat like this: In this image, I have already identified the hard disk I want to ...
