For my company we use 3 off site servers, housed in different cities. Each one of them is backed up 3 times too by a third party. Have a local 10 TB HD that I take literally everywhere with me and another one in a fire proof safe in the floor of my barn.

No. Strictly speaking it wasn’t my fault. It was a firmware bug (we were warned but somehow we forgot &#128580 I did make a shit load of overtime on it

After a couple of days outage we worked out we could recover things from our standby database but that meant copying the entire database across the WAN. All in all a weeks outage in the run up to our peak operations. I wasn’t exactly popular but didn’t even get a warning, mind you I once accidentally unplugged a SAN in our data centre whilst doing a power migration. Amazingly I’m still working there.

Nothing really. It's a basically a ruin with half a roof. Got a couple of old scrambler bikes in there, an old gun rack and a chicken coop with 6 chickens. Bought it and a quarter of an acre of land off the farmer next door dirt cheap with grand plans to convert it. There's a bomb and flood proof safe in the concrete floor.

Will the chickens and the 10 TB HD be OK if the bomb goes off?

When you enable one drive does it automatically change the pathing to every folder on your desktop? f***ing microsoft…now I remember why I hate them. So invasive. I only re-enabled it to learn power automate.
