Stories from a Data Recovery Firm

Or Stupid people should own electronics.

Ontrack data recovery tells stories of the unusual and usually stupid ways people break stuff. Everything from a photographer spray insecticide inside his computer because of an ant infestation, to a scientist drilling a hole in his hard drive and pouring oil to stop a squeak in his computer. I thought scientist were supposed to be smart, I guess not. Then there’s the woman who washed a usd drive, I have to admit I’ve washed and dried the same usb drive not once but twice and it still works to this day. Then there’s the professional wedding photographer who overwrote someone’s wedding with another couples.
