You'd best use a very stout paperclip at that. (Or a thin stiff piece of mechanics wire). Using a thin Chinese paper clip is recipe for disaster!

... because last week the system drive in my server failed. "No problem" says I to me, "I have backups. I'll just re-install the OS on a fresh drive and restore from backup."

Then I discovered that all my backups were stored...

...on a different partition

... on the same drive that had failed.

DOH!
