Maybe the data wasn't readable.

I don't know whether ICANN tests the recoverability of the escrowed data.

(Such tests would probably be made using a perfect set of data files. A better test is to assume that 10% [randomly selected] of the backup files are corrupted in some way and then to see if recovery is possible.)

Errors do creep in. For example, I just found that one of my machines has an ethernet interface that has a flakey TCP checksum offload engine that accepts bad bad TCP segments. This had the effect of damaging the integrity of one of my file stores.)
