The guy who regularly trims my big hedge in August never showed up this year. I sent him an email without a response. Finally I called him yesterday.
Turns out his kid dropped a potted plant on Jared's laptop - destroying it and taking out all his customer records. No backup.
Fortunately the hard drive has survived and the data can be transferred to a new machine. Hopefully he learned his lesson and goes for some cloud storage or an external drive. He will be by to fix up the hedge soon.

A potted plant--that's one I never heard before.

Unfortunately, people rarely take backups and images seriously until they end up losing irreplaceable files, photos, videos, and music. I guess he just had to learn the hard painful way.
It is good one of his customers knows something about computers or he'd spend a long time trying to get back all his customers.
