How do you back up data that was never stored? Or logs for transactions that never completed? And how, even if you had those transactions, would you meaningfully restore them when the restoration process itself would simply repeat the result of overflowing the available indexes?

This isn't a typical disaster recovery scenario. The architecture itself is at fault, and the data is lost.

Origin Systems was a game studio EA purchased. They produced Ultima, Wing Commander, and System Shock. They were absolutely awesome and I loved everything they did prior to EA buying them.
