Actually that's a good meta-strategy as well, if you have the disk
space.  Keep the things in their original form in one place, and
operate on a copy, if there's any possibility that information will be
lost in the translation.  For example, keeping an original email
around may let you do a forensic analysis on it, which you couldn't do
if you just saved the contents.  This is also true of PGP signatures
on tar files, and stuff like that.
Resolve is what distinguishes a person who has failed from a failure.
