You simply have been lucky so far.


For the past ~9 years? Possibly :-) .

The upgrade from 7.3 to 8.1 (when Yast2 came out) forgot to mount my /usr or /opt partition, thus writing so much files to the root partition that it overfilled and crashed the upgrade. So I lost it.

Luck had it that my backup was not full (a Yast made backup only).

Yes, you have been lucky >:-)
