It is not a good day when you’re working until 4am, and your wakeup call is a reminder you’ve forgotten a 10am meeting. It is a worse day when your backup restore tool starts segmenting unexplainably. It is a much, much worse day when you rm -rf on the wrong machine, deleting something like 20% of the backup before you wonder ‘why is this taking so long?’ I think I’ll have some bruising on my hand from hitting the wall. Hopefully it was only the incremental backups and metadata that were lost and not the main backup, but it is a bit hard to figure out exactly ATM. :/ If anyone needs me, I’ll be the one over in the corner screaming.
