Summer brings us the joys of long days, warm weather, and perfect opportunities to go to the beach. But it also brings us oppressive heat, humidity, and thunderstorms. Lightning strikes occur more frequently in the spring and summer than in any other season. Electrical storms can cause power surges and blackouts. When your power goes out, you usually expect everything to turn back on again as if nothing had happened. (As any readers affected by the Northeast Blackout of 2003 will recall, though, it may take a day or two.) But for this recovery client, everything came back on but their hard drive. The client removed the drive from their PC and attempted to use data recovery software, but could not recover anything. The client came to us for our power outage data recovery services.
