I have an open question regarding recovering a deleted file from a Hard-drive!
Can Java do this?
If so, does anyone have an algorthym for me to get started on?
How would I go about reading the HD?
Thank you very much in advance!

You can't do this with the standard Java libraries, which are designed to work in a generally OS independant way. You would have to use JNI to access the hard drive with native code.
