Well last night I screwed up big time - managed to delete the boot disk 
for our AD server. Fortunately we've been running daily backups since 
switching to PBS, seeing as that's actually feasible now.

Less fortunately, the AD server has 1.7TB of data on it, takes about 11 
hours to restore - we don't have a high end setup :) But the live 
restore really saved my bacon! started the restore, the AD server booted 
just fine. Was a slow as a dog for the first few minutes, but it was 
actually usable. Restore finally finished this morning, all back to normal.

Live restores are an amazing feature, thanks Proxmox!
