[quote]You are a real winner. How much legal training do you have? How much caselaw did you review before reaching your conclusion?

re: Lerner's HD was merely "scratched" - McChowder
[quote]How does the hard drive get scratched?[/quote] Most probable cause is from the actuator arm. The real question is how did they know it was scratched? You would have to open the case which is contained in a sealed sterile environment to physically look at the platters. You wouldn't do that un...

re: IRS Needed Only Two Days to Confirm Lerner Hard Drive Crash - McChowder
Something doesn't feel right about this. How do they know it was "scratched"? The HDD platters are contained in a sterile sealed casing. Removing them outside of a sterile clean room environment is a huge no no. The type of data recovery at their disposal, from what I understand, would not have warr...
