A British Columbia resident has filed a lawsuit against Apple for his lost data after it was stored on Apple’s Time Capsule.

The plaintiff, Perminder Tung, has accused Apple of a breach of contract, and is attempting to sue the company for $25,000 (approximately R209,245*).

“The alleged ‘Time Capsule’ did not encapsulate and protect the information it was intended to secure,” Tung wrote in his claim. “The breach destroyed the workable character of the thing sold.”

Since 2009, Tung had been storing his valuable information on the Time Capsule, which is a mix of a wireless network router and a storage device, only to find that the device no longer turns on.

Apple haven’t made any comment regarding the complaint.
