Whoops! Emory University server sent reformat request to all of its Windows 7 PCs

Quote:
Sometimes, there are incidents that take place that remind people who use PCs to back up their files on a regular basis. Such an event happened earlier this week at Emory University in Atlanta, where an "accident" resulted in a server sending out a reformat request to all of the Windows 7 PCs at the school, including the server that sent out the request itself.

OK, which one of you works at Emory University?

If they were using a pxe system then wouldnt they be royally screwed as there's no local content per pc? and if they used a non windows format method which id have thought they would have as windows would send a command to each pc to be accepted, then the partition table would have gone bye bye.. so no chance of a recovery!
