DriveSavers, Inc., in data recovery, e-discovery and digital forensic services, announced a $300 discount to victims of the flooding disaster in the state of Louisiana.
As many as 40,000 homes have been affected by devastating floods in Louisiana caused by torrential rain. According to Gov. John Bel Edwards, who spoke at a news conference alongside Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator Craig Fugate, well over 20,000 people have been rescued since the flooding began late last week.
In Livingston Parish, one of the hardest-hit areas, officials estimate that 75% of homes were a total loss.
President Obama declared a federal emergency in the state.
As some residents begin to return to their flood-damaged homes for the first time, DriveSavers, in coordination with its network of computer service providers in and around the area, look to help by recovering data from damaged devices. The company is offering $300 off data recovery services through September 30, 2016 for single drives, RAIDs, smartphones and tablets that may have been damaged by floodwaters, mud or impact.
"DriveSavers has more than 30 years of experience recovering photos, videos, contact lists, financial records and other important data that may have been kept on devices damaged or even destroyed by natural disasters," explained DriveSavers president Scott Moyer. "As Louisiana residents begin the process of assessing damage, we hope to provide a resource for those impacted by this devastating event."
If a device has been damaged by floodwaters, do not attempt to dry out equipment or recover data using utility software. Keep the HDD or media wet by placing it in a plastic bag with an airtight zip closure.
