#101264 - STOP immediately!
Responding to: Farshid Jafari Harandi's previous message
STOP immediately!

Here in the US, after hurricane Katrina, there has been several radio reports on HDD recovery. ALL, recovery professionals, without exception, have said DO NOT DO ANYTHING YOURSELF, it will make it much more difficult (and costlty) to recover your data.
All I can say id buy a new HDD and restore from your backup which you, of course, have.

Oh, a while ago (before networking and the associated automatic backup), I worked at a company and a consultant came in. After a week or two, he got some of us together and said "come in Saturday, say nothing to anyone about it". We came in Saturday and he had us back up every PC in the company up and then he erased the HDDs. After that day everyone in the company remembered to back up.
