Deleted File

Get Certified Get Ahead

A file that has been logically, but not necessarily physically, erased from the operating system, perhaps to eliminate potentially incriminating evidence. Deleting files does not always necessarily eliminate the possibility of recovering all or part of the original data. 

See NIST SP 800-72 and NIST SP 800-101 Rev. 1 under Deleted File for more information.
