					Data erased deliberately or unexpectedly can be retrieved with the aid of data retrieval
specialists. Computer forensics is helpful in identifying the root cause of the lost data
or information.
  Computer Forensics can be defined in many ways. Most commonly, computer
forensic is a specialist aid that delves into detailed analysis of computers in order to
execute the necessary tasks. It carries out the exploration of the retained and preserved
data of the computer, identifies any damage that might have occurred to the computer
and the root cause of the damage. The enquiry process begins right from scratch and
goes further into the intricate elements of the computer's operating system.
  Computer forensic is a much wider conception and theory which investigates the
transgressions upon computers by virus or cyber criminals. Several acts have been
brought into force in order to monitor the criminal activities; yet there are a lot more
that still exist. It is very difficult to uncover such activities due to lack of enough
proof or substantiation. All these complex situations can be controlled with the
assistance of computer forensics.
  The key dictum of computer forensic specialists is to not simply find the illicit but to
also find the facts and evidences. The arrangement of the substantiation is done in a
manner that leads the criminal to face legal action.
  Some Of The Illegal And Scandalous Activities In Computers Are:
  * Unofficial utilization of computers by pilfering usernames and passwords.
  * Contacting the victim computers through the internet.
  * Broadcasting a malevolent computer program that is a virus.
  * Pestering and stalking in cyberspace.
  * E-mail scam.
  * Stealing official documents.
  Network forensics or Computer Forensics makes it easy for the controlled, structured
and cautious detection of offence and misuse cases. The computer forensics
specialists should possess adequate knowledge of data retrieval software as well as
hardware technicalities and should have the skill and experience to execute the job.
