In my experience, there seems to be an inverse relationship between how
critical one's data is and how long it can hang around uncorrupted and
undisturbed. The more important it is, the more frequently you should
be backing it up. IOW, frequent and redundant backups -- serving both
archival and operational needs -- is for all practical purposes the
only defense.

I recall the days when the night shift computer operator would start
their shift with a bunch of mag tapes, ready to do the nightly backups.
Two copies were made, one stored off site.
