Digital archeology is about revealing lost and forgotten data. I wanted to find out what happens with deleted files and how it is possible to unearth lost knowledge and memories. By buying used SD-cards and using the open source program Photorec I was able to demonstrate how it is possible to recover deleted files. At the final exhibition this unearthed histories were summarized on 5 posters and a computer station enabled the visitors to see their own lost and forgotten data by connecting their usb-stick.
