Maybe we should just use a paper and comb for our audio needs?

I have no problem understanding your case, but still there exist specialized companies that can reconstruct everything and retrieve the data from anything, but is cost money.
An example 2 years ago when a suspected criminal throe his laptop from his balcony 60 meter above ground into the concrete below when a police was ringing his doorbell.
The HD went in to 100 pieces, but the police still managed to retrieve 98% of all the data stored on it.
So this has nothing to do with closed or open formats, if you are lost you are lost, now it is just about money or work to get it fixed.

Maybe by doing the dishes for a year will do the trick with your wife.
But by all means don’t be afraid for keeping your data on a HD, just make sure you have a second one, and a third in a fireproof safe or outside you house, your office will do. Don’t compress your files do a strait copy, and don’t trust a cheep raid system.
The really big disaster always comes from the unthinkable like fire, lightning and theft; virus is also an issue to think about.
Everybody keep a fire insurance, but it want help you getting back your family images gone up in smoke, replace your music is mostly money and time.

I sometimes find creases in my shirts. Can you recommend any new and interesting ironing strategies?

You are blessed; at least you know what kind of qualification a new wife must have.

I sometimes find creases in new wives.

I have to agree, a perfect one is hard to find.
