The Ontrack company recovered 99% of the data from the hard drive of the space shuttle Columbia, which crashed in 2003. In this new task, it evaluates the chances of success at between 80% and 90%.

Britain's James Howells contacted a panel of data recovery experts to ensure that, if his hard drive containing 7,500 Bitcoins (currently valued at $ 364 million) is found in a landfill, its content can be extracted, he said. Howells to The Sun.

"I have assembled a full consortium of experts in the field to refute all claims that the City Council has said it has concerns about," said the 36-year-old computer engineer, referring to the stance of Newport city officials, who fear that the costly search operation in the landfill does not give results and that finally nobody bears the costs derived from the costly action.

"The City Council says they are concerned about who will cover the costs if it is not recoverable, but that would all be part of a signed contract. I am asking them for a three-month feasibility study so that we can sit down and outline our plans and they can raise their concerns. and we can answer them, but they won't agree, "Howells said.

After studying aerial photographs of the landfill, the Briton believes that the hard drive would be found somewhere in an area of 200 square meters and at a depth of up to 15 meters.
