 What to do if your note book or Pc gets submerged in water.

What if my computer or notebook disk drive gets wet?

"When I saw that 42,000 gallons of crude oil spilled from the Coffeyville Resources refinery on top of the devastation of the flooding, I knew we needed to help," said Scott Gaidano, president of DriveSavers.

If you find your computer submerged in water, your safest bet for getting your data back is to call a professional data recovery company like DriveSavers."




To maximize the chances of successful recovery of data after a flood or water related accident:

  • Do not attempt to dry out or power up a hard drive that holds critical data.
  • Keep the hard drive wet (not your labtop or computer box) by placing it in a zip lock plastic bag; go as far as to add a little water if you have to, and get it to DriveSavers or a local reseller ASAP
  • Recoveries are more successful if the mineral content of the water has not adhered to hard disk surfaces.

Statistically, the highest chance for data recovery exists on the first attempt.
