Is there still any access to the hard-drive in its older state (prior to
breakage)? If not, then a search for the data would be hopeless. Did the
data (appointments ) ever appear /after/ the computer was brought back to
'life'? If not, I suggest checking if backups of the hard-drive exist or an
external SD card (if purchased) of the handheld was ever used for backup.
Otherwise, there is absolutely no chance of recovery.
By the way, I would also recommend switching to a platform that is
relatively reliable. Whatever O/S your colleague was using is certainly one
factor to blame.
