NewsTell me, is this a believable story (IT perspective) [modified] PinmemberJosh_T19-Jun-14 2:46 
I'm not really interested in the political aspect (for this discussion), although it will likely morph into that.
 
Given the technology for the time of the "crash" (2010-2011), is it actually feasible that the emails regarding the IRS controversy are gone and can never be retrieved GIVEN the premise there was no direct action(s) taken to erase said emails?
 
One story by Politico: http://www.politico.com/story/2014/06/irs-lois-lerner-emails-108044.html[^]
 
The reason I ask is because while I'm not the most tech savvy person, I have worked many years in tech-support which involved some low-level data retrieval, remotely repairing computer software as well as physical computer repair. This was all done on personal computers and when it came down to data retrieval, it was highly likely that data was actually lost beyond the point of retrieval. The only times I wasn't able to retrieve the data personally was when a hard drive failed and it had to be shipped off and even then it was highly unlikely that the data could not be recovered. In short, I find it highly unlikely that the emails for this controversy are lost but I thought I'd see if my betters had insight into data storage for enterprise applications.
