I recently helped a new client, Jet Stream Girl; deal with a terrible data loss issue. We did our best with her hard drive recovery from a 12” PowerBook. Sadly we were not able to get her data. She had an older iBook that was sick, but still had some of her data on it, so we migrated that unit to a new computer for her.
It was a bad situation, as she lost a large amount of data and photos. This is unfortunate reminder of why backups are SO important. See our web site: www.harddrivesdie.com for more info.
She gave us a nice shout out in her blog, which can be found here.
