CBL Provides Beijing Data Recovery

SINGAPORE -- CBL Data Recovery Technologies Inc. (CBL) today
informed athletes, journalists and tourists traveling to the Beijing Olympic Games with
laptops and digital cameras should they be unable to access their data or photographs
that the devices can be taken to CBLs Beijing laboratory for data recovery. An Englishlanguage
hotline has been established for international guests who encounter data loss.

Journalists attending the games may neglect to backup their laptops as they rush to file
stories to meet deadlines. Athletes and tourists may upload photographs of their trip to
China to their laptops. However, these laptops may experience exposure to extreme
temperatures, liquids, power surges or mishandling during the daily commute to sports
venues resulting in physical damage to the hard drive and possible data loss.

USB thumbdrives used for backups and memory cards from the digital cameras also can
suffer accidental damage thus preventing access to the information on them.

Bill Margeson, President of CBL Data Recovery Technologies Inc., counsels anyone
who cannot access files on their laptop or if it is making strange noises, “Turn off the
laptop immediately and don’t attempt to install or reinstall software which could overwrite
the data on the hard drive. If you cannot view photos on your camera, remove the card,
but don’t discard it. Images on flash and memory cards are recoverable.”
