Ontrack Data Recovery provides free digital photo recovery for Cyclone Victims

March 28, 2006 – Ontrack Data Recovery, the world’s leading data recovery company, today offered residential users affected by Cyclone Larry free recovery of digital Jpeg photos until the end of April.

While digital photos stored on CDs and DVDs are easily transportable before a storm arrives, the same cannot be said for photos stored on PC hard drives.

As Queensland residents return home, the extent of damage to digital photo libraries stored on hard drives will remain unknown until power is restored.

Fortunately, the majority of digital photos can be recovered from cyclone-damaged drives despite outward appearances.

“Damage to personal property as a result of severe weather is certainly difficult, and the thought of losing precious irreplaceable possessions such as digital photos can be devastating,” said Adrian Briscoe, General Manager for Ontrack Data Recovery Australia.

“Ontrack is happy to offer the expertise of our 150 highly trained engineers in helping people rebuild by providing recovery of treasured digital photos at no charge,” said Briscoe.

According to a recent survey by the Photo Marketing Association, of the 20 billion digital images taken globally in 2005, nearly 65 per cent, or 12 billion images, will be stored solely in digital formats, including CDs, DVDs, and hard drives.
