At an old employer, one of their clients who is also one of the biggest companies in the world, downloaded ransomware.
The one who downloaded it was an IT manager D'Oh! | :doh:
You can't beat human stupidity Sigh | :sigh:

But what I really meant was, when you don't switch that drive today or this week, probably nothing will happen.
Not like you shouldn't keep backups or never switch that drive again Laugh | :laugh:
You needed it three times over the years, so once every couple of years?
Could be this year, could be not, but whether or not it is you will be ready because you switched that disk Wink | ;) Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
