many photographers have in advertently formatted the wrong card and lost valuable images.

I did just that, a few weeks ago. Fortunately, I was able to recover all the images by using a data recovery tool I found through a search of these forums. I was lucky that I caught my mistake before I shot more than a few "new" images after my careless mistake.

I've read about sudden failures of CF and SD cards which lose all data, but that must be very rare. Most of us check the images on the card periodically, even during the same say's shooting, and that has to help. I agree that it would be foolhardy to go on a vacation or other shoot with only one memory card, but very few of us who would buy a huge 128 GB card have no other cards to begin with.
