taoye (1456551) writes "I've been seeing a lot of arguments and lengthy discussions about the recoverability of data on hard disk drives, and the many 'creative' techniques people have to protect said data. I was wondering how this debate goes when the subject is changed to solid-state drives and flash memory? What is necessary to erase and protect these types of memory? How recoverable is "erased" data from a flash drive?"
