"I once Ghosted a blank drive over a client's hard drive instead of the other way around - oops."

I have seen a RAID controller do that automatically...

Mirrored disks, one fails - alarm goes off, everyone carries on.

Pull it out, all good.

Pop in a new disk, all good

Array starts churning, excellent - copying data from one to the other, tea time.

Erm, where are all the files?

Why do we have two disks with identical unformatted data?
