Data disaster horror stories of 2007

The list, provided by Kroll Inc.'s Ontrack Data Recovery unit, illustrates some of the strangest and wackiest things that people put electronic storage devices through on a regular basis.

Putting drives in the washing machine. Using oil to stop them from squeaking. These are just two examples of the user bloopers the company's engineers nominated for inclusion on the list. Remarkably, Kroll data recovery specialists were able to recover the data in both instances.

This year, Kroll's engineers said the company has seen more damaged portable devices than ever before.

Er... yeah, probably because there are a hell of a lot more of them being sold each year. :roll:
(I'm starting to suspect that 'computerworld' will write a topical 'news article' about anyone who's willing to splash some cash)
