DriveSavers Assists Flood Victims

NOVATO, Calif. -- Record flooding suffered by owners of hundreds of homes and businesses in Kansas have exposed computers to water damage, making their hard drives vulnerable to failure and the loss of valuable data. DriveSavers, the worldwide leader in data recovery services, is offering assistance by providing free data recovery services to flood victims until August 30, 2007.

Computers can be critically damaged if exposed to water. Submerged hard drives can be damaged by corrosion build up on the electronic circuitry. If water enters the internal housing, minute debris and water impurities can build up on the disc platter surfaces; which leads to computer failure and data loss.

When I saw that 42,000 gallons of crude oil spilled from the Coffeyville Resources refinery on top of the devastation of the flooding, I knew we needed to help.” said Scott Gaidano, president of DriveSavers. “Water and oil exposure are the worst conditions for electronic equipment. If you find your computer submerged in water, your safest bet for getting your data back is to call a professional data recovery company like DriveSavers.”
