As the number of people using digital devices has increased, the digital forensic, which aims at finding clues for crimes in digital data, has been developed and become more important especially in court. Together with the development of the digital forensic, the anti-forensic which aims at thwarting the digital forensic has also been developed. As an example, with anti-forensic technology the criminal would delete an digital evidence without which the investigator would be hard to find any clue for crimes. In such a case, recovery techniques on deleted or damaged information will be very important in the field of digital forensic. Until now, even though EVTX(event log)-based recovery techniques on deleted files have been presented, but there has been no study to retrieve event log data itself, In this paper, we propose some recovery algorithms on deleted or damaged event log file and show that our recovery algorithms have high success rate through experiments.
