"No" in ALL circumstances?

Didn't an earlier post articulate instances in which backing-up was OK -
i.e. if the item is damaged and becoming unusable? Though Jim's question
didn't cite "damage" as the reason for duplication, a blanket denial may
prevent people from exercising rights to which they are entitled.
