A workmate plugged in his hdd to a laptop that was on standby, what happened next was that the original contents of his hdd was wiped and was replaced by the data on the laptop he plugged it in to.
Anyone have any thoughts on the WHY and HOW this happened? I am genuinely curious. And if there is a way to retrieve his original data?
(Yes we all know he shouldn't have plugged it in while it was on standby what I'am actually curious about is the technicalities of why/how his data was overwritten.)
Thank you in advance.
