You can simply reload the "$5000" worth of software onto a new computer, so you have not lost it at all. As to the data, simply load your backup.
Exactly the same as you would do if you had a HDD failure.
So you would simply claim for the cost of the laptop.
Not really, there are certain programs that are tied to specific systems. So for the act of having to reconfigure the licensing, which some may
include extended times with software creators on instachat service, or phone service out of India, do I then get to claim time lost?
I'm just wondering here.
You and the other poster responding to me have valid points.
To the other poster, some but not all my stuff is backed up, especially new work that I haven't finalized, which indeed can be priceless in the
I personally think whoever did this overstepped the bounds for claiming monetary value. Unless indeed it was a program with one license that could not
be reinstated and a new license would have to be purchased. Must be one hell of a program.
As far as hours lost, etc.
There too, I can see a claim being made, but not on the cost of the device.
So I don't really support the people involved in the OP article...
