Recently, increasing utilization of Big Data or Social Network Service involves the increases in demand for NoSQL Database that overcomes the limitations of existing relational database. A forensic examination of Relational Database has steadily researched in terms of Digital Forensics. In contrast, the forensic examination of NoSQL Database is rarely studied. In this paper, We introduce Redis (which is) based on Key-Value Store NoSQL Database, and research the collection and analysis of forensic artifacts then propose recovery method of deleted data. Also we developed a recovery tool, it will be verified our recovery algorithm.
