Copied not stolen
Why do these stories always say the data was stolen?
The data is still there, so it was copied rather than stolen.

I bought a Draganfly X6 back in 2009. Used it for commercial aerial photography.
Transport Canada was a nightmare to deal with in those days. A special permit was required for each aerial job.
Draanfly was a great company to deal with.
It looks like Zenon Dragan (the guy who started it all) must have retired when he sold the company. His name doesn't appear anywhere on their website.
I got fed up with the workplace monitoring by my former employer and quit. They believed the AI was always right and when I proved the AI was wrong (on many ocassions) I was accused of being overly sensitive.
The supervisors couldn't do the type of work we did, but they thought they were experts because they knew how use google and youtube.
Needless to say the high staff turnover rate continues.
Ahh... the good old days with Winchester drives.
We had a customer that decided to renovate part of their office which included replacing a bunch drywall. A few days later I get a call....your computer isn't working.
It turns out the air filter on the drive had become plugged with drywall dust resulting in a serious headcrash and I had to replace the fixed platter. No airflow to support the heads flying slightly above the disk's surface created an interesting circular pattern on the platter.
I still have that platter.
I remember having to do backups the same way back in the mid 80's. We were using a Control Data Hawk hard drives with the same 5 fixed / 5 removable configuration.
I always did the backups when no one was around so there was no chance of distraction and forgetting where I was in the backup process.
It was always interesting going through security when I would have to fly somewhere with one of those 5meg (14") cartridges as carry on.
Ahhh.... the good old days.
