In an effort to help Florida residents and businesses recover critical data from damaged media, Kroll Ontrack®, a subsidiary of KrolLDiscovery®, is donating data recovery services to those impacted by Hurricane Irma. The company is also working with Tech-Zone™, a CompuCom® company, to add emergency drop-off locations throughout Florida at which victims can drop off their damaged media, including computer hard drives, laptops, tablets, mobile devices, storage devices and more.
Individuals and businesses are encouraged to drop off damaged media at any Florida Tech-Zone location. Residents in any of the affected areas who cannot travel to a Tech-Zone location can call 800-872-2599 to arrange for free shipping of their media directly to Kroll Ontrack.
