RAW DATA
Raw data is uninterpreted data from a storage medium. The maximum amount of raw data that can be copied from a storage medium equals the storage capacity of the medium. As raw data, the data is handled without considering the information stored within the data. When handling raw data one does not know how munch of that disk is actually in use or free. Not until the data is interpreted through a file system, will there be access to directories or files.
