It’s happened again, someone else has asked me to take a look at a hard disk that has lost all its data.
I was hoping that I wouldn’t see one for a while after the last one, but it appears not.
It really does amaze me what people keep on a portable device that is highly important and impossible to get back.
Anyway, I recovered what data was on there, took a few hours to do, but most of it was there. Sods Law says that the first file that was needed was one that it hadn’t manage to recover!
I convinced the user to put anything that was important up in the cloud so that it was safe and could be got at easy. Is always nice to see someone taking on board some advice.
