The problem is what if the disk is not swapped?
Probably nothing.
I get that backups are very important and you're really glad you have them when you need them, but when was the last time you needed them?
Not making backups for a month probably won't matter.
Now that's a risk you have to be willing to take because the moment you skip a backup stuff breaks and you need the damn thing (I bet there's a law for that).

I see you already have a solution so you should really keep on doing what you do, and if you didn't you should still be looking for a solution.
Just saying it might be more important for the higher ups just so you can tell them you have this strict backup regime than that it is to actually have all those backups.

It's like insurance, you hope you won't need it and you usually don't, but when you do you really do Laugh | :laugh:
