Rove's Mysteriously Deleted Emails Can be Restored

Experts say that Karl Rove's thousands(millions?) of conveniately deleted emails can be restored. Hopefully investigaters started confiscating hard drives days ago. Now if the old rules apply they'll just let the White House investigate themselves.

Deleting embarrassing e-mails isn't easy, experts say

WASHINGTON - If Karl Rove or other White House staffers tried to delete sensitive e-mails from their computers, experts said, investigators usually could recover all or most of them.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is investigating whether the White House or the Republican National Committee erased "a large volume of e-mails" that may be related to the firings of eight U.S. attorneys.
Rove's lawyer, Robert Luskin, denied Friday that his client, President Bush's top political adviser, intentionally deleted his e-mails. He said Rove thought they were being stored on other machines as well as on his own.
Deleting a document or e-mail doesn't remove the file from a computer's hard drive or a backup server. The only thing that's erased is the address - known as a "pointer" - indicating where the file is stored.
