I didn't spend any time on this concern. I just got it for free with the
design of my network backup solution. I do feel that further discussion
on the topic would not be time particularly well spent, however. :P

Sorry Raz, I haven't kept good logs on such issues. Certainly there have
been times in my life where having a backup saved my bacon. But I forget
the details. Also there have been emergencies in my life where having
quick and ready access to facilities has saved my bacon. But I forget
the details.
