When an Australian pool and spa shop was being robbed, the burglars decided to hide all the evidence by pouring the large stock of hydrochloric acid on the shop floor and counters, consequently damaging the shop’s computer and point of sale terminal. The shop owner was able to get a very smelly drive to the local Kroll Ontrack lab, and although the computer was very badly damaged, all the data was recovered from the affected computer.

Kroll Ontrack, a leading provider of data recovery, ediscovery and information management, recently revealed its list of the top 10 data disasters for 2012. This year’s list, all of which were successful data recoveries, represents that the increasing reliance on electronic data and reliability of technology is often met by human error.
