Where's that vent in the roof going? Does it blow in dust - looks like there's a load of reddish dust around your server air intakes in the first picture (or is that just a bad photo? Or dandruff??). If it's brick dust a. it can be conductive (damaging circuit boards) and b. it can be mildly radioactive (apparently emits radon gas). Would mildly radioactive dust be enough to corrupt HDDs? Maybe I'm being a bit optimistic here.
My other guess would be that your server room is possessed and you should get in a priest - looks like some evil entity has seriously messed up your cabling...

Do I need a young priest and an Old priest though? :-)
