Hardware failure destroys more Colorado records
DENVER — Colorado officials say a hardware failure that destroyed some computer files regarding gambling and medical marijuana licenses also has affected recordings of driver license hearings held from March 1 to May 17.
In June, state officials said the problem had destroyed files regarding the gambling and marijuana industry licenses.
On Thursday, officials said recordings of some driver license hearings were lost. They said the Governor’s Office of Information Technology recovered some, but other recordings of hearings held from April 8 through May 17 were lost as a result of the hardware failure and couldn’t be recovered from a back-up system.
The office and the state Department of Revenue are working to have an independent assessment of the department’s recording systems to prevent more file losses.
