When it comes to any type of backups, there is no guarantee that your data will be intact. In all my years in the computer industry, I have seen RAID systems fail, backup servers fail, thumb drives, portable drives, CD's, DVD's, online services such as web mail, online backup services all fail at various times....all when people needed it the most

The key is redundancy, never trust your data to only one or two backup types / companies / locations.
