This has happened to me so many times....

Of course on a much smaller scale.

We do systems tests like this on a regular basis. In fact during demos, I actually partially erase my bosses email account. Then take the person I am demoing to, over to my console and put it right back. Up to the second.

Creatives do what creatives do. System people do what we do. I'm lucky to have a foot in both camps. All of my crucial data is quadruple redundant and geographically dispersed. The most crucial of it is not even online.

I suspect that the PIXAR files were just fine and absolutely nothing happened. "Pull it out of the wall!" That's a riot. I suspect they have literally hundreds of machines connected to several hundreds of drives. Which thing exactly was the systems guy suppose to unplug?

Yep Perrone it's a riot sure enough .. and a cheap publicity stunt insurance would never pay out on that.

Cheers.

I'd be surprised if they weren't quadruple redundant, with offsite backups kept on servers buried in a secret vault somewhere in the Nevada desert with ex-Area 51 personnel watching over it... just in case of course. WE all know no one would make this sort of mistake, right...? Um, probably... well... doody happens...

Thus wise IT guys keep backups to the backups where NOBODY knows where they really are, except for "Master Yoda"...
