WATER DAMAGE
A data storage unit that has been exposed to water will have some damage. It may be the result fire extinguishing, flood or ship sunken in seawater. The actual damage arises when the unit is dried and the metallic parts corrode. In addition, the water may have been polluted leaving a residue when drying. A data storage unit that has been exposed to water must be kept wet until delivered to a data recovery specialist.
