Top Ten Unusual Requests for Data Recovery – No.1


Data Recovery Hit Parade

restoring data from water damaged disk drivesDisklabs countdown of odd requests for data recovery from computers and electronic devices comes to a close with this tale of woe.

Number one “Does it float Daddy?”

External disk drives are excellent for storage gigabytes and now even terabytes of data. Sadly they don’t make good bath toys. One of our clients contacted us in a panic when his four year-old twins put it in the bath. Before you ask why would they do that, it was a trendy bright orange colour. And no it wasn’t plugged in.

Dunking hard disk drives in the water is not very good for the electronics and bubble bath isn’t helpful either. It took several days to dry the drive out and some careful cleaning but we were able to recover all of the data.

Call us today on +44(0)1827 55999 or use our contact form if you have a problem with a computer disk drive, a phone or a tablet.
