A veteran IT professional tells TheBlaze that the IRS claim that the agency lost two years worth of former IRS official Lois Lerners emails is simply not feasible.
On Friday, members of Congress revealed that the IRS would not be able to hand over Lerners emails to and from other IRS employees from January 2009 to April 2011, possibly due to a glitch or crash. Lawmakers were seeking the emails as part of their investigation into the IRS targeting scandal.
Norman Cillo, an Army veteran who worked in intelligence and a former program manager at Microsoft, argued it is very difficult to lose emails for good and laid out six reasons why he believes Congress is being lied to about the Lerner emails:
1. I believe the government uses Microsoft Exchange for their email servers. They have built-in exchange mail database redundancy. So, unless they did not follow Microsofts recommendations they are telling a falsehood. You can see by the diagram below that if you have three servers in a DAG you have three copies of the database.
2. Every IT organization that I know of has hot swappable disk drives. Every server built since 2000 has them. Meaning that if a single disk goes bad its easy to replace.
3. ALL Servers use some form of RAID technology. The only way that data can be totally lost (Meaning difficult to bring back) is if more than a single disk goes before the first bad disk is replaced....

its amazing what DRIVE SAVERS can get off a dead disk....
I spent 30 years in the business. Not only is missing emails BS, but I will state for a fact several copies of the emails exist. Look in the right place.
But remember these are the same people that created the Obamacare site
It’s only feasible to the liberal leftist 0bama sympathizers...
Her disk drive has nothing to do with it. The emails are in a DB and can be retrieved from backup.
It’s time for the perp walks to begin! Crimes have been committed. Let’s try enforcing a couple of laws around this joint. We’ve been a lawless country long enough.
Thats what I’ve been lead to understand.
Also remember most of the members of Congress think a computer is a new form of transport
That can’t happen. The executive branch has NSA evidence that is being used as blackmail. Congress won’t do a thing. Supreme Court will not do a thing.
Of course they are lying. They are stonewalling and trying to buy time of Lerner.
” if the federal agency is totally mismanaged and has the worst IT department ever.
No, that would be far too much of a coincidence, i.e., the worst President ever also has the worst IT department ever, no, I just can’t buy it.
Anybody who has ever worked for a large corporation or government agency knows that “emails are forever”. Somewhere every one of them is archived...
Feasible or PLAUSIBLE???!!!!!!!
Thats also why these sleazes have tried to get around the fact by illegally using private email addresses while communicating about government business.
Former contractor at the IRS. They do use Exchange, and off-site backups are required every week.
Bo ate it
There you go!
The IRS was used to alter an American election, now obstruction of justice. Where in sam hell are our leaders?
Insane, just insane.
Well, if it is Microsoft just glean it from Boydton, VA and be done with it.
