Thief steals laptop but returns 10 years research work to Swedish professor

Its totally disaster when someone steals laptop with tons of useful data. Here we've got an interesting case. A thief stole a laptop computer of a professor at Umeå University in Sweden. The laptop contained research work done by professor, for which he worked 10 years, which he had not bothered to back up. But the thief was so kind because after few days he returned the data back in USB drive in an envelope.

About a week after the theft, the professor returned home to find an envelope containing a USB memory stick which had been taken along with the computer.

The professor was shocked to discover the thief had copied all the documents and personal files from his laptop to the memory storage device, a process which likely took hours.

All things considered, the professor is delighted at the outcome, despite the loss of his computer. He hopes, however, that other thieves can learn to be as compassionate.
