Submission + - how recoverable is data on flash / SSD drives?

taoye 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?

Leveraging always beats prototyping.
