In one of the most famous backup near-disasters, the movie Toy Story 2 was almost lost to bad backup procedures. A “rm *” command was accidentally run at the root level on the UNIX machine where the movie files were stored. Someone noticed that the movie files were disappearing, but by the time panicky employees pulled the plug on the UNIX, 90% of the movie was already gone. The movie files had been regularly backed up, but no one had noticed that the backups had been failing for the past month. Fortunately, one of the technical directors had been working from home and had copied the files to her home computer, so by a stroke of luck the movie was saved.
