I know that but...

But more than an year ago, a shiny morning, just after I restarted because of something, my good old lovely 80Gb Seagate exploded. Exploded for real - the engine, all the plates were in salad, completely unrecoverable, it almost throw my case out of the desk. I lost close to an year of work. I still have nightmares from this time so I'm constantly scared now, even with daily backups (to show its support, the WD hdd of the backup machine crashed too) I'm feeling unsure and think twice every time before I hit the del button.

This is one of the main reasons to move to version control - to know I can get my source back from the past. But anyway... I'm scared.
