MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The state government did not lose any data, after a massive computer crash last weekend that affected at least five agencies.

Stephanie Marquis of the Administration Department said a vendor was working on equipment, when it knocked out storage devices and servers last Saturday. The agencies most affected were the D-N-R, Health Services, Administration, Corrections, and Safety-and-Professional Services. Marquis said the system is still being scanned for errors, and there have been no issues with any of the data or applications.

She said the vast majority of state file servers are available, but some data backups are still being restored.
