An interesting tactic to check (in large part) a bootable backup.

It's not a perfect check. However, over many years I've seen a few clones that refused to boot and BSOD'ed (usually a fault in the target disk) but I have not yet seen an instance where the cloned drive booted but any data was lost. It's certainly not impossible, which is one reason I also do image backups.
