168,000 deleted files recovered from Hunter Biden's laptop

A cyber forensics expert commissioned by the Washington Examiner recovered over

168,000 deleted files from a copy of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop.

Many of the deleted files were system files, application files, or duplicates of user files stored elsewhere on the laptop.

Some of the recovered data, however, shed light on his financial dealings in 2018 and early 2019,

as well as his personal dealings during that time frame.

Also recovered from the drive were deleted pictures of government ID cards for two individuals linked to President Joe Biden's son.

Konstantinos "Gus" Dimitrelos, a former Secret Service agent who has testified in over 100 classified, criminal,

and civil matters, retrieved the deleted files from unallocated space on the hard drive using a technique called data carving.

The existence of recoverable deleted user files adds another layer of authenticity to the hard drive, Dimitrelos said.
