Lamenting data loss in the digital age (and how Datamind saved the day)
We’ve all been there. At some point, the noughts and ones of our digital universe decide they don’t much like us and disappear into the mystical, elusive realms of dark IT jargon.
From a linguistic viewpoint, we might even need a new word to describe the particular breed of frustrated lament this regrettable incident gives rise to. From a practical viewpoint, it can mean the total annihilation of thousands of hours of work, a huge loss in business continuity and overall chaos.
It was our turn last week. No matter what security safeguards you use, a server crash will always leave you with a lot of rogue data – known to exist but whose whereabouts are currently unknown. Not good.
That’s where Datamind – Advanced Data Recovery Services stepped in. During what is possibly the worst time of the year for getting tech support, they truly went beyond our expectations to ensure that we can continue providing our services seamlessly. We would like to express our warmest thanks to the great guys there; technical details aside, it really does pay to have a professional by your side. Somewhat sadly, our biggest compliment is that we won’t be needing their services soon.
