Look up the good old PREY 2 app and if you planted that before it was stolen you have some hope.
But about your lost files. Given we have Google Drive, DropBox, Microsoft's drive and more, why would anyone not have backup copies today of what they can't lose?
Hello. Recently, my Dell Optiplex 745 was stolen when hse was broken into & unfortunately, I believe my ex roomie may be behind it, as my PC was only thing gone. I loved my PC and I WANT IT BACK, along with the only family pics I have & legal documents, that were recently added. The OS is Wind XP Prof SP3. My question is this: a cpl yrs ago, I was looking around on my comp. a bit more in depth, & somewhere (maybe bios??), I recall finding/reading somethng about a program that was available to somehow "track" it down, if stolen..like a low-jack! Can anyone give me some info on this and is it still possible, if I have my Service Tag #/Express Code #?? Was it called Smart Technology?? Thanks in advance, for any info!
