~ Don't Throw Out the Hard Drive with the Flood Water: Data on Water-
Ravaged Computers is Recoverable ~
MARKHAM, ON, June 19 /CNW/ - CBL Data Recovery Technologies Inc., a
leading international provider of data recovery services, is extending to
business and residential users in Western Canada affected by recent flooding
and rain a 35 per cent discount off the cost of data recovery services.
Many parts of Western Canada were vulnerable to flooding due to heavy
rainfall and spring run off. Residents living near Calgary are on notice after
tributaries of the Bow River surged after record rainfall over the weekend.
Earlier this month, more than 1,000 homes across British Columbia were on
evacuation alert due to threat of flooding. In May, Saskatchewan drivers were
put on alert to watch for potential highway flooding and bridge washouts.
"Personal safety should be everyone's foremost concern when bad weather
hits," says Bill Margeson, president and CEO of CBL Data Recovery Technologies
Inc. "Once the initial crisis has passed, businesses then look to repair the
damage caused by flooding and that can involve lost data due to water damaged
personal computers and servers."
If data backups are kept on CDs or DVDs offsite, the risk of data loss is
dramatically reduced. However, if business and residential users return home
or to the office to find flood-damaged PCs and servers, they should not throw
in the towel. When taking assessment of their losses, computer users should
know data is very resilient and is recoverable.
Whether the data is last month's sales yet to be invoiced or personal
files on the home computer, regularly backing up data on CDs and DVDs and
storing them in a separate location is a best practice to follow regardless of
where Canadians work or live.
"Business owners shouldn't delay taking the necessary actions to have the
hard drives of their computers evaluated by data recovery experts to minimize
business interruptions," adds Margeson. "Data is a critical element of the
operations of Canadian businesses. When access to data is denied and companies
suffer data loss, it can be crippling."
CBL is Canada's independent data recovery specialist. Its team of data
recovery experts recovers data from all forms of digital storage media
regardless of the manufacturer's platform or operating system in its
laboratory in Markham, Ontario. CBL serves customers directly and through a

disaster strikes. In addition, affected storage media may be sent to CBL

flood-damaged computers until the end of July 2007. For more information,
