Read this interesting Washington Post article on “Computer Rage” and the booming industry of data recovery.
It’s amazing the things people don’t back up. The article even mentions one recovery of 12 unaired The Simpsons scripts!
It also amazes me that I do some of these tasks (only the basic ones of course) for a student worker’s salary, a tad less than the $2000 commanded by big time data recovery specialists. 🙂
