Such a person is not making backups and deserves what he gets.
I haven't got anything to say about dump/restore because I haven't
bothered with them for years. I do know that dumps from mounted file
systems will often appear to work, but will fail when it matters. This
is not a bug and is expected behaviour to which the solution is obvious.
