No, alas, no. I think most people will stay with servers and the EU,
so your email to/from them will be in "the system". Although maybe not
in a form that is convenient for the authorities to query (they have
to mass-send requests to several ISPs...).

Another solution is using your *own* server. That would be kinda
funny... Have the police call you to get logs about you.

Because you are criminally liable for it and they don't? More
seriously, I suppose that if they actually believe you when you say it
is an accident and you show that you took appropriate precautions
(off-site backups, ...), then they will not make you (big)
problems. There is “lost by accident” and “lost by “accident””. Not
entirely the same.
