NOTTINGHAM City Council is to spend £10,500 recovering data.
The authority will spend the cash getting the information back from what it called a ‘failed legacy server’.
A council report said that “due to incomplete backups of data, the server was not integrated into the council’s standard back-up regime, and copies of data are not available for recovery.”
The council has said the data is still required, but hasn’t revealed what it is. The decision was signed off by deputy chief executive Carole Mills.
