This paper presents a comparison and evaluation of several digital forensics tools on data recovery scenarios. Modern tools have been tested and evaluated in order to provide evidence regarding their capabilities in qualitative analysis and recovery of deleted data from various file systems. Results derived from the comparisons, present the capability of each digital forensics tool. Based on variables and specifications, the tool with the best performance is considered the most suitable application for analysing and retrieving files. A comparison between digital forensics tools takes place as well, alongside conclusions.
