DATA RECOVERY: How to send a data file to the Data Recovery Team

We recommend that you provide a copy of a good older backup if once is available.

If you have any good older backup files from a time when the problem was not yet occurring, this can assist in the repair process and may allow for faster repairs at less cost.
