And if there’s no privacy with Gmail, good luck with that email service from Microsoft, Yahoo! mail and all the others.
Recently, I was tasked with finding files that had been modified in the past 5 days. I was to copy these files from a SAN Snapshot and move them over to a recover area that anyone could get to.
