I have had this happen twice with the same data, where the drive it's on appears to suddenly loose it's format, and the data is completely irretrievable. So far this hasn't been a big issue because we keep regular backups, but I'm concerned that it's some sort of infection. I know it's not a failing hard drive because the data was both times on an ISCSI partition that is housed on a device with many other ISCSI partitions. All the device diagnostics say the partition is fine, and the first time it scrambled like this it was on a completely different device.
