Here’s a data recovery situation we took care of recently. This very, very sick hard drive was installed in an Apple Macintosh iBook that was being used as a server at a local high school. They were using an iBook as their server, because the iBook’s screen was only partially viewable making it impossible for students to use. They had data for their yearbook, and projects for about 50 students stored on it. Because of budgetary reasons, they had no back up in place. Our talented lab staff removed the hard drive from the iBook, and used our special MacMedics data recovery techniques to coax the data off the drive. It took a long time, but all of the needed data was recovered. It’s a good thing that we kept an archive of the rescued data, because the day the data was returned to the school, a student accidentally erased a major portion of it.
