Backup and Data Loss Horror Stories

Like the stories about wolves told to children to keep them from wandering in the forest along, these stories here are meant as cautionary tales. Told by or about those who have had disasters of accidental deletions, corrupt tapes, and other data loss nightmares, these cautionary tales are meant to help remind you why you keep making and verifying those backup tapes, even if all they ever do is gather dust until they're recycled and reused.
