I'm surprised no one has added the "I don't do backups 'cause all the
important stuff is in-my-head/hardcopy".

NASA has a truly horrid backup problem. They have so much data that
the media is beginning to fail before they can get back around to
transfer it to another format. There is stuff from the early Mercury
and Gemini days that is not searchable as it is on paper (that is
rotting away - pre acid-free days) and much of the moon landing data
that is electronic is on tape media with no remaining drives that

Imagine needing to backup dozens of TB that is readable at only 2-3Kb/s!
