Actually, FWIW, it _is_ actually possible (and not just theoretically,
but has actually been performed) to recover data even after perturbing
it with a large magnet and/or writing over the data many times.


How is this possible, once the data has actually been scrambled with a
magnet or completely written over with 0s and 1s?
