Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I worked in one place where the backups went to servers in another building, the other building was managed remotely, and checking the backups was one of those jobs that just never got done. Recovery exercises were just one of those things that were easiest to put off in the hectic schedules. Untill youfind a job has come to an end and you've got a spare day till the next one starts. At that point one of the team wanders over to the other building and finds that the backup script is actually failing to save the backups onto the server and has been doing that for three months.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
