The Saga Continues: White House Says It Routinely Overwrote E-Mail Tapes From 2001 to 2003

Posted by Bharat Suneja at 6:22 AM
The saga of Messaging Records Mismanagement continues, with interesting bits and pieces surfacing every once in a while. Elizabeth Williamson and Dan Eggen report in the Washington Post:
From 2001 to October 2003, the White House's practice was to use the same backup tape each day...

Although the White House said in the filing that its practice of recording over the tapes ceased after October 2003, it added that even some e-mails transmitted through the end of 2005 might not have been fully preserved. "At this stage, this office does not know" whether additional e-mails are missing, said the affidavit filed minutes before a court-ordered deadline of midnight Tuesday night by Theresa Payton, chief information officer in the White House Office of Administration.
Not sure if the email messages that "might not have been fully preserved" are part of the 5 million missing messages reported earlier.
