I just don't see any need to dredge through all the interpersonal details
and drama here, or any need to judge on whether people have it together to
back up their data or not. It also has nothing to do with "social capital".

Why keep someone's data from them when it is trivial to hand it over to
them, whether by uploading it or by sticking it on a usb drive. Jeez.  I
have ones to spare and have offered them multiple times to daravinne.

Daravinne, do you have the data or did you erase it? That is basically the
only question.  I will come to you and transfer the data.   That way you
will not have to deal with any sort of drama, minimal annoyance, and Tony
will have his stuff back. I know Danny is also perfectly willing to do this.
