Personally, I think we're just fine if everything is converted to bits and we remember that there is no guarantee that a set of bits might not be damaged or lost.

Just like books - there's no guarantee those won't fall victim to water damage, or fire, etc. You have to take care of it, and guard against the applicable failure modes. With digital data this is just as possible, but the techniques are as different as the failure modes.
