The Back Up Plan
It shouldn’t happen to anybody, but it especially shouldn’t have happened to Mike Marri. A 25-year photography enthusiast and uber-techie who runs a custom home electronics business in New Jersey, Marri recently took a family vacation to the West Coast: San Francisco, Monterey and Santa Monica and documented that trip like a one-man paparazzi. Over 700 hundred high-impact, emotional and priceless images ended up on his memory card. And to this day, he hasn’t been able to get them off.
He has tried. His local camera shop owner has tried. Software programs, recovery strategies, this product and that product have all been unable to retrieve Marri’s masterpieces from a corrupt, dysfunctional flash card.
