Data Recovery Attempted
Latham 12110 : In shop data recovery attempted after power failure pushes failing hard drive over the edge. Valuable lesson about backups learned. Don't let this happen to you.
In less than a second the power had failed the computer went dead. Sometimes it will restart. Sometimes its OK but not this time. This time all data on the hard drive was lost driving home the point of how important it is to have a consistent and reliable backup in place. There are times when I can revive the hard drive or at least recover the data but not this time. Charge for attempted data recovery, $55.
