I know this is kinda strange but was wondering how legal this is? How legal is it for a computer repair place to clone your entire harddrive and store it on a central server every time they bring it in? I mean like 30 terrabytes of data labeled with the persons last name and first and stored for years? Here is where it gets strange. The police are wanting them to do it so they have access to the data. Does this even seem legal? Plus the police having access to everyone's data? Just kinda wanting to see what people think?
