It seems that one of our divisional drives (almost 2 TB in size with about 14 million files and countless thousands of directories that are nested) was the victim of an unfortunate accident.
Mr. User had somehow managed to “accidentally” delete almost half the data and also somehow managed to get a directory listing of all the files beforehand. Then he highlighted each file that he accidentally deleted and presented them to us on the bundle of papers and asked if we could restore the highlighted ones.
As much as we wanted to say “No” we ended up attempting the restore and brought back the data.
I guess it’s one method of job security.
