It simply scared the bejevies out of me with respect to the safety and security of embedded devices, some of which I use each day. Luckily -- as in so many other areas of life -- the cure simply lies in proper prevention before bad things happen.

    Creating Custom File Systems and the Linux Loop Device
    Published. November 5, 2012

    A few weeks ago we had a crisis at our house. My son managed to delete the data from my daughter's USB memory stick. Not only did he delete it, but he did it in such a strange way I have no idea what he could have done. She was not too happy since all of her recent school work was on the memory stick. My best guess is that he deleted it by mistake, recognized what he had done, went into the recycle bin, but instead of restoring the files, tried to manually copy the files back to the stick...
