There is no reason he HAS to wake up as a tinman. That is probably the most expeditious and likely the more inexpensive solution, but they could probably build him a meat body, and possibly even copy his memories over to it.
Alternately, they could build him a meat body, possibly by growing up a clone from him, but with the brain excised, or possibly arranging for his cell cultures to take over a properly bleached corpse, then plug in a planktronic brain. Either course could take longer than backing up to metal.

We don't know that they have the technology yet.

Y'know, if I were Dana, the first thing I'd do once I met up with Nicole again would be to use a device to give her circuits a good jolt and demand "What the feek have you gotten me into?"
She has no cause to.  They already knew the job was extremely dangerous.  That's why they're getting paid so much.  If you take the job with hazard pay, expect to encounter some hazards.

The real Juan.

The backup Juan would be in a Tin Man body not a meat body.

Of course, while Juan is alive in this scene the following implies to me that he didn't survive the interrogation.

"and what we think happened afterward was pieced together from various sources."

That doesn't sound like Juan was telling her what happened.

On the other hand, who is the "we"?  ;)

Not to be paranoid here but are they interrogating the real juan or his backup? Dun dun dun!

Yeah, even though meatsack Juan survived the initial assault the narration, as noted, shows that his situation is a Not Good Thing.  If, as postulated, Juan revives as a tin man, then he'd only have data up to his most recent download and so could be part of the 'we' who were deducing the chain of events post-kidnapping.

That's assuming he doesn't keep a second backup for things like this. Considering the case he's working, he may have a "if you're reading this" dead mans letter which points the way to another, probably months older, backup.

Heck, that "professional" who visits and "calms him down" may be, in actuality, a very discreet backup technician who does housecalls under the cover of more intimate services.
Edit. The "Happy ending" is you don't end.
Dear gods...that's brilliant!  I never even considered that possibility.  But yes, talk about a discrete backup service!

EDIT:  She is carrying a small handbag here.  How big is a typical neuro-backup unit?

Juan strikes me as a paranoid type that would have backups of backups. I wouldn't count him out completely yet.

Also chutzpah assasins almost certainly have hit juans backups like they did hayami no tin man for juan sadly.. also though diana calls them thugs and they are murderers. These guys are a pretty professional bunch even if they screwed up a bit with the recording. Thugs would denote some type of quantum vibe gangbangers. I wonder if there is a professional assasin agency in bubbletown.
