Years ago at a client with some VIP users that really were quite important... one of the secretaries of such a VIP came into the operating department and asked if we could help her, the helpdesk had sent her up. A 3 1/2" floppy with important data was unreadable. We tried a number of tools and managed to get the important file back... a christmas present list of $VIP.

When asked why she kept that file on a floppy instead of on the server (which was kept in an old bank vault, literally...), she replied "It's not safe enough - what if somebody steals the server?". Yeah, the bottom cupboard of her desk is much safer...
