We tried to piece back their data for them as best we could, but they still had a lot of work to recover. For instance, one was able to recover their family table, but completely lost the profile table.
Totally understand ... makes sense to move to version 10, if nothing else, for the security of being able to backup to anything you want.
FWIW ... at my last location,and at this one, I installed a Linksys Network Storage Unit that allows up to two USB hard drives to be attached. Of course, at the last location, I also had the system setup on a mirrored set of drives on the server.
This location I take a thumb drive and backup weekly to take home, along with the backup to the hard drive.
This has saved my bacon a number of times
