Backups are done weekly I think, so most likely the most that will be lost is a week. This is unfortunate, for sure, but we'll recover and keep on crackin' over there too.
If the server is configured in RAID, a single hard drive failure would not cause data loss, and could be replaced "on the fly" without even taking down the server. Even a server configured in RAID 5 would require 2 simultaneous HD failures for data to be lost, and the need for a restore from backup.
And a backup only once a week?? - if this was discovered within a large firm, all the IT staff would be castrated.
