I wanted to let you know since we had another person reporting it that it most likely is something on our end and BbBoy will take care of it. :wink:

Oh no, you're not being a pest at all ADMINISTRATOR. I just haven't seen BbBoy on to ask him to look into this for you and to check the server side backup set up on our end since there was two other boards that I know of that had the same problem. :smile:

Hi ADMINISTRATOR,

Unfortunately our weekly backup that we had was written after the mod had deleted/edited posts. I don't know if you would still want to go as far back as a month so let me know and if you do we'll see if we can restore it for you this week. :smile:

Oh so you only keep one weekly back up at a time.... got ya.
Well, one question- has anyone been able to figure out why I can't restore from the server-side back ups?
Wait I take that back, I do have another question :smile:, how are the boards backed-up? Maybe if I have a better understanding of what goes on and what my choices are I, can tell you which would be btter. I'm just a little anxious because we've been down for a while now. Thanks for your response.

Daily backups are made and will only be kept for one day-the next day writes a new one and the old one is deleted. Weeklys are simliarly done so we'll only have one weekly-a current one and then one monthly one. :smile: It might be possible to just restore the posts-leaving the memberlist and other settings the same. How many forums do you have total? If there is only a small number it might be possible to set up secondary duplicates for us to restore old threads into and you can go through them deleting ones that you already have intact. Does that make any sense? :wink: I am pretty sure we can do that if you have only a few forums we probably can swing something like this-but if you have over ten then it would be pretty hard work on you to sort through it all.

Hmm... Okay can we do this: Can we restore it to a month ago? So that would be what, the beginning of October or a month ago today? Either way- both will have to do. I've already moved the threads to another board so that I'll be able to any new posts to the existing threads. Pretty smart hunh? :wink:

Thanks so much for all of your help. Hopefully we'll never have to go through this again.

I will get back with you hopefully about this in the morning after talking to BbBoy. We should have no trouble just doing a thread restoration and you can sift through and get what you needed to recover. :smile: I apologize for how long this has taken ADMINISTRATOR. BbBoy is working very hard on the dowloadable software soon to go live as well as working out the kinks from the last mini-update we had a few weeks back. I am glad you were able to get things moved to another board you have and them you'll be in a position to sort through threads a lot easier then having extra forums the way I have done myself before. :wink:

Oh no that's okay. In fact, you can just restore the entire board. I'll be okay. Like I said, I have duplicates of the existing threads on another board. I totally understand why it took as long as it did.
