To Those Devastated by Hurricane Harvey
We certainly hope your family, friends, or business has not been affected by the devastating storm, but if so please keep these tips in mind:
- DO NOT POWER on a device you suspect has liquid damage. Powering on a device with liquid/water damage could short circuit components and cause permanent damage and/or data loss. If you suspect there has been liquid/water damage to your server, computer, external hard drive, USB flash drive, or phone it is a best practice to not check if it is working.
- DO NOT DRY with home remedy drying techniques commonly seen on how-to videos. As a device starts to dry corrosion starts to take place and it could damage components on a device. Placing a device in rice, drying it in the sun, placing it in an oven, or using a hair dryer actually speeds up the process of corrosion.
- DO NOT WAIT, submit a case on datatechlab.com and get the device in the hands of a data recovery professional immediately! Our recovery engineer can properly clean and then dry the device before corrosion can begin to damage components.
