There's the Gateway example where the data storage devices are so odd that nobody even recognizes them for what they are, let alone understands their contents. (What kind of weirdo doesn't carry a circularly-polarized microwave emitter between their legs? Sheesh!)

One civilization's "data archive stored at the atomic level in ceramic disks" is another's "we think they were, like, tokens for using the transit system".
