As far as this drive goes they are claiming bad sectors which happens but the scenario they have outlined is impossible. Had they said some of the data was lost that is plausible but not all of it. The only way you lose that amount of data off a drive is catastrophic physical damage or someone purposely corrupted it before the technicians got to it. As far as it being recycled that is going to be normal protocol for a bad drive once it's no longer of use, I don't know what their policy is but usually they first going to wipe the drive either using software or a magnetic degausser which itself is going to render any data on the drive irretrievable. Then they are shredded just for the hell of it....
Absolutely, and I concur. However, you and I both know that this is beyond a mere "oopsie". In the middle of an investigation they (IRS) informed Treasury and the WH that these drives were destroyed and as Paul Ryan pointed out Congress was not told until they were asked exclusively about the files between 2009 and 2011. Which btw the IRS commish promised to hand over just a couple of weeks ago.
The 6 others who were named also had their Hard Drives crash and then Recycled? Makes Nixon look like a straight up guy.
