How best to recover data when you lose it?

Kathleen Atkins

Recently, Lounge member Roland JS proposed a series of tests and information exchanges in the Maintenance forum.

In the ordinary course of your daily work, he observed, data recovery is not top of mind.

But very little is more important than recovering files you accidentally deleted or reformatted. To see his description of his experiment and other Lounge member offerings, you can check into his thread.
