Help me try and prove the courts wrong


I have a friend thats a defence lawyer and hes had a case conserning a file that was downloaded. So called experts have been in to the court and put accross a case that claims information can always be recovered off a harddrive because they claim they have advanced programs. I thought that once a harddrive was formatted and information written over the area where old information was stored that that areas of the old information would be unrecoverable. I aslo though that if a person was to low level format then isnt all information gone? or is it still recoverable?

Thanks marls
