You took the time to protect your investment, and guess what, you were up and running in less than a day with minor inconvenience. Your system worked when you needed it.
My previous post is aimed at folk who give no thought to backups and then get caught, often losing years of work. Where I live (in Au) bush fires and floods, etc, can a do occur and houses get destroyed. It happens in other places too. This will destroy your data every time.
Data loss is avoidable and by having a sensible backup strategy the heartache can be mostly avoided.
