Kroll Ontrack Offers Data Recovery Discount for Storage Devices Affected by Flooding in Louisiana

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With unprecedented rainfall causing historic flooding and property
damage in Louisiana, Kroll Ontrack is offering free diagnosis and an
$850 flat fee for data recovery of all desktops, laptops and USBs
affected by flood waters. Kroll Ontrack has been helping victims of
natural disasters recover their important and sentimental data for 30
years. This offer runs through October 2016.

“While many possessions can be replaced and are covered by insurance,
the same cannot be said for digital data,” said Todd Johnson, vice
president, data and storage technologies, Kroll Ontrack. “When natural
disasters occur, we see an increase in the number of businesses and
individuals seeking help to recover data that was lost as a result of
damage sustained during the disaster. For the best chance of successful
recovery in cases involving water damage, it’s important to never
attempt to ‘dry out’ your device by opening it or exposing it to heat,
like a hair dryer.”

800-872-2599; or online at

TIPS: Kroll Ontrack recommends that victims fearing loss of their
vital information consider the following before assuming that the damage
is permanent:

  • Never assume that data is unrecoverable, no matter what it has been
  • Do not shake, disassemble or attempt to clean any hard drive or server
    that has been damaged; improper handling can make recovery operations
    more difficult which can lead to valuable information being lost
  • Never attempt to dry water-damaged media by opening it or exposing it
    to heat, such as from a hairdryer
  • Do not attempt to operate visibly damaged devices
  • Do not attempt to freeze-dry media
  • Do not use common software utility programs on broken or water-damaged
  • For mission critical situations, contact a data recovery professional
    before any attempts are made to reconfigure, reinstall or reformat
