In this case, it's not 100% clear a backup would have saved him. Since it deleted the files without warning, he had no indication that they were gone. The only thing that would have alerted him to the fact is if he had opened the project and discovered the missing media. There are times when I go for months without opening the project. With one of my drive synchronization procedures, it would delete the files on the backup too.

And given that he couldn't recover files from the hard drive, I would suspect some time had passed between when it happened and when he discovered it. I could be wrong though.

I'd be covered because one of my backup drives archives deleted files. The other backup drive maintains an exact replica of the drive - files on that drive would be gone. But that one checks for corrupted files. It just goes to show that just having a backup procedure is not necessarily enough. It has to be well thought out to deal with any possibility.

And to be clear I don't support this lawsuit. I file it under the s&*t happens category. Adobe has egg on their face, but financially responsible? I don't think that's fair.
