Top Ten Unusual Requests for Data Recovery – No. 6

10.10.15

Data Recovery Hit Parade

data recovery from a damaged laptop computerNumber 6 in Disklabs countdown of odd request for data recovery from computer disks.

“I reversed the car over my laptop”

It could have been any of us.  One customer placed his laptop bag on the roof of his car as he prepared to drive into the office.  He suddenly remembered leaving his wallet in the house and went back inside. Wallet retrieved he jumped straight back into the car and started to drive off.  At this point he remembered the laptop and reversed back up the driveway; only to run over the bag and machine, which of course had already fallen off the roof.

Despite having a tonne or more of BMW on it we were able to recover the disk drive and restore the data.  The screen was a bit too “scratched” for further use.
