Oh come on, like "Draw down" wasn't the first thing that came to your mind when you read the question. And you people call your self Arfcom members.

I took A+ but it was about 9 years ago, and it was VERY different.

I'm going with "Draw Down".

Enough of my customers know I am a gun nut to be laying hands upon me and I am not a puny computer geek either.

Before you tell him the data is lost you sit him at the keyboard and tell him to log on and fuss about while he does pretending to be busy with something. When he is logged on say "But not before typing in 'command line xyz'" or you will lose all your data permantly.

Great advice.

I think the question was more along the lines that the hard drive failed and your trying to fix it. Not that the tech caused the data lost.

I'm still going with answer E.
