Of course I should have stated that I used that drive _exactly once_
to archive the bits off of it.  There is no way I would run something
like that in production ever again (even on a desktop).

In this case if some data had fallen due to bad-block-rot, it would
still have been better than having 0%.

(Really, there were a small number of files that had not been backed
up elsewhere.)
