    Arrived at work today to find the company next door had been burgled, They had the security gate pulled of the front of the building ( There a beer whole salers) they wiped out the Spirits and legged it.

    Now we have all our pictures and files backed up to an external harddrive and the boss is scared that if we get burgled they might take the computers and the harddrive loosing everything all sound reasonable so far, and I can hear you saying put a gate round the external or move it to a secure location. OH NO not our boss, he's stuck a cardboard box over the top of it, "no one will find it now" he says, I did point out to him how many leads do you normally see comming out of the bottom of a box:blink.

    dont worrie about the over heating he said and proceeded to cut a hole in the top of the box.

    how long do you all give it.

    If it looks like you're deliberately trying to hide something, it's likely something that thieves will want to take. If he doesn't think they'll notice, then he's not thinking like a thief.

    Dealt with an estate agent once who got burgled and was well miffed at losing his client data.

    He had his hard drive fitted to a remove caddy and took it out each night securing it in a floor safe hidden under a carpet. All well and good you might think.

    The next week the local river flooded and his office was under 3 feet of water and ...... turns out the floor safe wasn't watertight !

    Nothing is ever safe ! :p

    Convince him to buy a good quality data safe. Should be water + fire proof and pretty secure from theft. Tbh, you should really be putting your backups into one already, and also keeping an offsite backup.

    His name isn't Scrooge McDuck by any chance?

    The day something happens to your files, may be the day that it is too late to react. He'll be somewhat sorry then...

    If you having trouble getting the money out of him, point out the potential cost of the data loss should someone spot his cunning disguise.
