I had a new 5k iMac with SSD go bad. The EFI worked but it could not be restored or accessed in any way by the Apple store genius bar. Effectively, it was bricked. I got a refund so I could get a replacement. So I left them the computer. But, I am wondering what happens to my data. It wasn't accessible through the computer, but the SSD card (it's not a 2.5" drive, it's the memory chip card thing) may or may not have been recoverable. Does anyone have actual real knowledge of what happens to these computers? Presumably the logic board might have major problems, as it can't be booted to an external or a network drive. What happens to the drive? It was not FileVault encrypted, and I know that any home folder can be rooted. I presume that Apple has strict policies about user's data, but does anyone actually know if the SSD will be wiped or destroyed? Is there a chain of custody, or can any employee just walk out with it?
