One of my clients had a tape drive backup that they religiously plugged a tape into every evening for years.  It would whir and buzz for hours.  One day the hard drive in the main traffic computer crashed and they tried to recover files from the backup tape.  There weren't any traffic files on any of the tapes newer than 6yrs old...

They got to pay about $2500 to have the traffic and billing files recovered off of the dead traffic drive.

Just because it looks (or sounds) like it is backing up doesn't mean it is...

Backups that are not tested are not backups!
