The most recent Texas fire season lasted 378 days, and was still going strong when the year ended. The Texas Forest Service officially closed the books on the 2011 season, with a record $337 million in damages, but the season was still burning strong until recent weeks.
While February has seen a reduction in the number of fires and a “low-to-moderate” risk of fire danger in the state, experts at the Texas Forest Service are predicting a long, hot, dry fire season across Texas in 2012, as well.
The data recovery specialists at 24 Hour Data have seen data loss from all types of events: accidental deletions, dropped hard drives, floods and natural disasters. There are few data loss causes more heartbreaking than a home or business fire.
After all, not only is mission critical business data or personal finance information lost. So are family photos, important documents, personal essays, poems, school work, music and movies. Today's businesses and families alike store their entire lives on hard disk drives or SANs within their homes or businesses.
When you're facing data loss following a fire, you're probably also facing immeasurable other losses. We understand. And we'll work as hard as ever to replace your lost data, whatever it may be. If your hard drive is accessible following a fire, regardless of the physical damage, we will provide an honest estimate of your recovery chances.
And if we can't get your data back, there's no charge, so you don't stand to lose any more.
Home and business fires are tragic, and 24 Hour Data is doing what we can to help people in our home state of Texas recover from a particularly hard fire season.
Remember, just because the odds of fires have dropped from high to moderate, remain vigilant. Respect public burning bans, use common sense, and back up your important data to avoid catastrophic data loss.
