"Iron Mountain Inc. said last week that it had begun inspecting its four off-site data storage facilities in the New Orleans area and had yet to find any computer disks or tapes that were directly damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

"However, Bob Brennan, president of Iron Mountain North America, said he could not guarantee customers that the media stored in the facilities is completely undamaged. In a statement posted on its Web site last Tuesday, meanwhile, the company said it can't 'determine to what extent [archived data] has been compromised until a full evaluation can be completed.'"
