The small town of Bunnell, Florida was home to a government office that had been around for decades. The office had accumulated a vast number of important documents and files over the years, many of which were stored on old floppy disks. Unfortunately, the predecessors of the current staff didn’t have the foresight to transfer these files to more modern and permanent storage media.
One day, the staff at the government office in Bunnell realized that they needed to access some of the files stored on these old floppies, but they were unable to read them. They attempted to use an external USB floppy drive in conjunction with the GNU utility ddrescue, but they could only reconstruct around 65% of the disk image. The staff realized that they needed professional help to retrieve the lost data.
That’s when they contacted WeRecoverData, a company that specializes in data recovery. WeRecoverData quickly assessed the situation and determined that the media type was specifically a floppy disk with a capacity of 1.44 GB. The recovery purpose was for the government and the lost data size claimed by the customer was 1 GB. The client ed the files for Legal Related, Digital Data Forensics, Investigation & eDiscovery, and the type of critical files that need to be recovered were Common Flat Files (Documents, Spreadsheets, scanned files, Videos, Pictures, etc.)
The staff at WeRecoverData went to work, using their state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to carefully retrieve the lost data. Despite the age and fragility of the floppy disks, the team was able to recover a total of 7.46 MB of data. The government office in Bunnell was thrilled to have these important files back in their possession.
This successful data recovery case highlights the importance of using modern storage media and the expertise of professional data recovery companies like WeRecoverData. The small town of Bunnell can rest easy knowing that their important documents and files are safe and secure, thanks to the dedicated team at WeRecoverData.
