If you hadn't already heard, our friends at Macrium are now offering deeper discounts for TR subscribers. Silver subscribers are now eligible for a 20% discount on purchases made from the Macrium online store, and Gold subscribers get a whopping 40% off. To celebrate, the company has handed us five Reflect v6 Workstation license keys to give away for home use. Less than 24 hours remain for you to enter.
For a chance at one of those licenses, we want to hear your best data-loss or disaster recovery story. Tell us all about your experience with that dead hard drive, corrupted SD card, bankrupt cloud storage provider, or even the crazed storage reviewer in your life. Tug our heartstrings with an accounting of the gigabytes of precious data you lost, and the steps you took to get it back—if you got it back at all.
To enter, write up your data disaster and post it in this forum thread. Entries not posted in the associated contest thread will not be eligible to win.
This contest will run until tomorrow, April 27, 2016, at noon Central Time. We'll roll the winning stories into a front-page post and notify those winners via email. This contest is open to our entire audience—no geographic restrictions this time around. Be sure to review the full rules of the contest in our forum thread before entering. If you have any questions or concerns about this contest, be sure to post in the comment thread on this article.
Now is also a great time to become a TR subscriber if you haven't already pitched in. Silver subscribers can pay any amount to gain a year's worth of access to the aforementioned Macrium discounts and other TR-specific perks. Gold subscribers need only to beat our average of $34.63 or so right now to gain a year's worth of even deeper discounts and even more special TR features. Help us out and enjoy great discounts even if you don't have a story to share.
