Actually Alun, Dave, Sean and I had that very conversation at TechEd before the concert (can't remember if you were there or not).

Then the company takes them out for a celebratory meal to congratulate them - whether it worked or not, because of course, if it failed, it's the fault of the guys who made the backups or the instructions.
FWIW: I *believe* the Kaseya/Acronis issue has been resolved.
