Having been there a couple of times over the years, I was glad to see this in writing. Igt is a fact of life, that sometimes you cannot use the backups. For a variety of reasons some places perform their backups knowing that the corruption is there but make the deliberate decesion to not fix it until later. I have done conversions where I have had to peek around the corruption using these methods. Thanks.
