I'll add my own story:
We had a laptop walk out the front door two days ago, but thanks
 to a backup server backup not one hour before the theft, my
 boss (the victim in this case) had a working computer less
 than 12 hours later with no loss of data (all 6 Gigs).

-way to go retrospect!

my mantra: backup early and often
