Having 1337 computer skills, I have never had the need to take my computer somewhere that I had to have the data on my hard drive recovered (I also back up my data). However, I have heard many horror stories about people who take their machines in to places like the Geek Squad to have their data recovered. I’m constantly hearing stories about employees going through peoples files and copying things they might want like downloaded movies and reporting customers to the police for things like child porn found on the computer. This cartoon makes fun of that dirty secret in the computer repair business.
