EPA has missing emails that can't be found

These relate to an ex-employee (Biologist) responsible for the assessment of a mining operation.

Now, hard disk drives do fail. In fact, it is not a matter of if they will fail, but when they will fail. So backups are essential. Yet again, it's a case of "oh, the hard disk drives and nobody bother to make backups". Data can be recovered off of failed hard disk drives. There are low budget ways (place them in a freezer and give them a good hard twist when they have been powered up) and high budget ways (take them to a specialists data recovery unit for a few thousand $$$$). But no, nothing done here ....

The agency also notified the National Archives on Tuesday that there may be some unrecoverable emails that should have been preserved under federal law. “I’m still hoping we recovered all those emails,” she said.

The committee has tried to reach the employee in question, who McCarthy said previously resided in Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula but has since relocated to New Zealand.

More incompetence.

They're supposed to make hard copies also.

Obviously another cover-up operation is being exposed.

It worked so well for the IRS, guess the EPA decided to follow in their tracks. Or the memo from the White House to every agency told them all to use the dog ate my emails excuse.

The only thing I'd be happy with now is. If Obama came on TV from the rose garden and said this...

you can bet that they have a hard copy of every thing about you joe and suzy sixpack or any corporation , and if the hard drive failed they could retrieve all of the data that could condemn them. but none that would exonerate them.
