KÜRT – Data Recovery and Information Security

Free data recovery by KÜRT for flood victims

The heavy rains of the past weeks have caused considerable damage nationwide. In addition to vehicles and buildings, IT equipment has also been damaged by the flood. KÜRT Zrt, renowned for its data recovery and information technology services, wants to be a part of the recovery effort: in the next two weeks (up to 18 June 2010), KÜRT specialists will be offering to recover data, free of charge, from computers that have been damaged by the flood, to the extent allowed by the capacity of the company’s data recovery lab.

The firm’s data recovery experts call upon all parties affected to send their flooded data carriers to KÜRT as soon as possible, because corrosion reduces the chances of successful recovery with every day that passes. The company’s professionals emphasise that under no circumstances should the flooded data carrying device be dried out with a hairdryer or switched on after it has been soaked, as this may lead to even more serious problems or even to irreversible data loss.

Prior to performing any free data recovery, KÜRT’s experts will check whether the damaged data carrier does actually originate from a flooded region and whether the data loss was in fact caused by the flood.

KÜRT has also offered its data recovery capacities in the past – to the victims of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, of the tsunami in the Far East on 26 December 2004 and of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in 2005.

Those affected by the floods can obtain further information from KÜRT Zrt’s customer service department.
