I'm not sure I'm in the right place for this but I guess there is no harm is asking. I'm currently in a custody battle with my ex and there are some messages supposededly sent and deleted on FB messenger over a year ago I guess? Anyway now our devices are undergoing a forensic investigation. I guess they are copying the data off our phones and computers and going off that. My question is how does that work and can they get those supposed messages from the computer or phone when they were "sent and deleted" over a year ago?

Nowadays special software is available that can help retrieve all the deleted data from your computer, laptop, the smartphone also from your call details etc. The data you delete is still saved in the encrypted format. This software decrypts the deleted data.

FB likely keeps logs of everything that goes through its servers, so there is that. "If it's put on the Internet, expect it to be there forever." Aside from that, physically completely destroying the data storage device (fire, degaussing, trash compactor) is really the only way to be 100% sure the data is gone. Once it goes to the net though, all bets are off.

Facebook stores all the information about you, but they will not let you to have an access to it. It's some kind of confidential. So if you deleted something there's no way to turn it back.
