My wife's laptop was stolen. We filed a police report and gave them the serial number. I have backups on both my time capsule and via backblaze (cloud backup). The laptop is registered with the iCloud 'Find My iPhone' app, and Backblaze also provides a 'Locate my computer' service. My question is, should I erase the laptop or not? I feel like erasing it will eliminate the chances of tracking it, that I should give it a couple days. Wife wants to erase it now, which i know it needs to appear online and hasn't so far. For some reason the laptop doesn't have a "Notify me when found" checkbox like the iphone/ipad do on our icloud account. It would be nice if I could be notified when it begins the erasure process so we have a location/ip address, but icloud seems doesn't seem to have any historical data. Its been less than 24 hours since it was last online, and iCloud had no location info. Thankfully backblaze does show you the last location.
