    it's a clown show.

    Most large companies and government agencies still use mainframes and reel to reel magnetic tape. That doesn't exempt them from having to retain records they are legally required to maintain.

    We didn't send anyone to jail when the Bush administration fixed the intelligence around the policy to invade Iraq which cost hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi lives, the lives of 4,500 US servicemen/women and a trillion dollars to boot. Though I agree with you that someone needs to go to jail over this IRS scandal, the hypocrisy is thick here!

    Well, Cheney's hard drive failed and the WH lost all the emails showing the collusion and made up WMD evidence.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

This is not unusual at all. I do it myself and, in fact, I must do it to retain communications for longer than 15 months so that our line of business remains in compliance with the firm's risk and control policies. But, any IT specialist who tells you that they can always recover every file from a corrupted hard drive is not telling the truth.
    Not every computer crash is due to a corrupted hard drive. And most corrupted hard drives are not so corrupted that data cannot be recovered. And I do not buy the suggestion that the IRS does not have the space to store more then 6000 emails per account.

    You are making that up as you go along. I suggest that you google and read the "The Federal Records Act".
