Data disasters befall us all. Hard drives fail and precious family photos are lost, or a business laptop with valuable corporate data is stolen. But some disasters are more colorful than others. Kroll Ontrack, a provider of information management, data recovery and legal technology products and services, made a list of its top ten data disasters for 2010. "Data loss situations continue to run the gamut in terms of when, where and how they happen, and the causes of loss can greatly vary. While every data loss situation is different, an experienced data recovery provider with the right tools, techniques and expertise can help ensure as much critical data as possible is recovered,” said Todd Johnson, vice president of Ontrack Data Recovery operations, Kroll Ontrack, in a statement. “As the world leader in data recovery services, we offer the fastest, most convenient and cost-effective solutions to customers who have experienced data loss.” But have hope: disaster recovery services mean nearly all of these true stories have happy endings.
