What is an Info 2 Record?


Windows automatically keeps an index of what was deleted and when.

It is kept in the Recycle Bin.


When the Recycle Bin is emptied, the INFO2 record is deleted.

We run special scripts to find any and all INFO2 records or pieces of records.



Naming convention:

Before deletion:   letters.doc

After deletion:   dc241.doc


(d for deleted, c for the file coming from the c partition, and then

an arbitrary number, then the file extension assigned to the file)
