How does self-healing work when a miners node goes down with your files?

From my brief research it sounds like you can pick and choose between different storage types based on your needs and what miners are offering. In-case of a failure of the miners storage node, Filecoin states there's protections against data loss: "The Filecoin network continually verifies that files are stored correctly. The Filecoin blockchain has a built-in self-healing process where faulty miners are detected, and their files are redistributed to reliable miners". So how does self-healing work when a node completely dies where your file lives, and the original file also no longer exists in your possession? It seems like you would lose that file then yeah, and it would be on you to make sure it's distributed across multiple nodes?
