I'm gonna go all Darwinistic here (pun not intended) but after being in 
the computer game since 1970 or so, anyone who does not take (and test[*]) 
backups deserves all that they get.

I got caught badly when assiduously taking daily backups (not on a Mac), a 
disk crash was a poor time to discover that some were corrupted in such a 
way that although the files themselves were visible, their parent 
directories weren't; I still have no idea how that happened, but I stopped 
using that PoS years ago.
