Stolen flash drive

Postby modine100 » Fri May 29, 2015 12:47 pm

We had a break-in over the weekend and one of the items stolen was a flashdrive with all the data files from Power Church on it. Can the thieves retrieve any information from the drive?

They could open the files with Notepad and get information such as names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. However, they would have to dig a bit to figure out what any dates mean, and I suspect the perps who did the break-in are looking to make some quick money. That said, they could sell the drive to someone who knows what they're looking for.
