The hosting company that hosts our website had an accident two weeks ago. A big accident. Despite their extensive security and redundant systems, they not only lost forever all the data on our server, but they also lost forever all the data on our backup server. Not everyone hosted by this company was so unlucky. But we were among 100 or so companies that were severely impacted. It took our hosting company until yesterday to finally tell us that all hope was lost. There’s no way that the data recovery experts can ever recover any of the data on the extensively damaged hard drives.
