Comment: Recovering data from a wiped drive (Score 1) 527 527

Is there a single case of someone being able to recover usable data from a drive that was properly wiped more than once with random data? More importantly, has there ever been a case that DOESN'T involve advanced recovery tools that only governments have access to?

I've never been canoeing before, but I imagine there must be just a few simple heuristics you have to remember... Yes, don't fall out, and don't hit rocks.
