Just recently we had a customer bring in a laptop and external hard drive that had been through a severe house fire. This persons house had been completely destroyed and the computer items had a pretty serious meltdown. Many times when this happens the data is irretrievable. In this case, the customer was lucky as far as their data was concerned. Our Service Department was able to utilize data recovery techniques and we were able to get all of their files back.
This just goes to show you that even if you are backing up your data externally that it isn't necessarily safe from fire, flood or other natural disaster. You should have your most critical data backed up and locked away in a fire safe, and if you are in a flood zone, waterproofed as well.
The photos below speak for themselves. If you need computer repair help, please call our Service Department at 208-472-2800 or stop in at 4524 W. Overland Road next to the Reel Theaters across from Hillcrest Golf Course in the Country Club Plaza.
