    Thank you for the information on social media in divorce cases. It’s interesting to see how modern technology is changing the types of evidence used in the courtroom. I’m amazed that text messaging is the most common form of evidence! What is your advice for using social media and texting if you are thinking of a divorce? Should I wait until afterwards to use these mediums to communicate?

    This is very misleading. First of all while deleted information could potentially be recovered this is done due to the way NTFS stores and removes information. When you delete something you delete the record but not the content. What that says is any new information can over write previously deleted records. So if you are constantly using the computer cookies you deleted a day ago has a high probability that is cannot be covered because the new information written to the hard drive has over written that data and cookies are small in size so there is a high probability that bigger data will over write it instantly. Also a seasoned IT expert will know if key-loggers and spyware are on the computer. If you look simply in the task manager you will see the process running unless it is a rootkit. Only hackers have rootkits not those professional key-logging spyware companies. You also have to be advanced to even know how to use a rootkit. So if this is your not so techie spouse believe me it is VERY easy to find a key-logger or spyware. Please stop spreading misinformation based on your non subject matter expert point of view. You clearly do not know what you are talking about and all you are doing is spreading fear and misinformation.
