I always ask my clients what backup solutions they are running and when last they did a backup of their data. And you will be shocked just how many people don’t regularly backup their data on a regular basis, even though most of their lives and work are stored on their computer. But for some reason they never think of the importance of that data that is stored on their machines. So here is a little lesson, you might be able to get the data back. But you are going to pay through your teeth to get it recovered. As one of my clients below found out a nice R10 745 bill for the recovery of their data after a hard drive crash.
