I hope the OP is not relying on Time Machine as the only source of her backups as Time Machine is there for convenience, not reliability. I hope she does not have to learn that the hard way.

Really important data should be specifically backed up in its original format, preferably to a reliable cloud based service and/or local hard drive of any chosen form. iCloud is reliable but expensive compared to other equally reliable vendors.
