Let's try something new.
Tell us of a time when you had to recover data, for either yourself or a customer, that was particularly extraordinary. Tell us what caused the data loss, what was at stake and how you were able (or unable) to get things back on track again.
How about this? I'll throw some loot in. Whoever posts the gnarliest story will win a prize. I won't tell you what the prize is now, but what I'll tell you is that you're definitely going to want to win.
We'll need multiples tales of woes and triumph and requires that 7 responses are posted to this thread in order for someone to win the prize. Alright Backup Heroes, let's do this!
I'll reveal the prize in about a week's time! :P
