People often say that having a backup is very important. You could argue, however, that there is a problem with this statement. A corrupted backup is completely useless, for example, and having an outdated backup may be as good as none at all.
Some backup solutions are designed to create secure copies of your entire system without letting you restore individual parts of it. In such cases, if you want to restore a file, you cannot do so without losing changes to the rest of the data you want to keep.
In other words, having a backup is not enough. You need to be sure that your backups are recent, that they are stored reliably and are working properly, and that they allow you to restore what you want whenever you want.
