Liability for trespass to chattels is limited to the damage done,
 and liability for conversion is limited to the cost of replacement. 
Needless to say, this is ridiculous when it comes to valuations for 
data - the cost of replacing your hard drive might be measurable,
 but the cost of replacing your data is extremely intangible.

And what about Mass conversion?  A single hard drive may not constitute 
enough for any legal measures, but a thousand may be enough?

Still the problem really is at proving who or what is the cause of the 
conversion.
