Host migrated datacenters, and lost a days posts.

#1

Post by Adagio »

Hi everyone. Our hosting company migrated to a new data center.
The migration took longer than anticipated, and the snapshot they used was from a day before, and thus everything since then was lost.

I asked if they can make a new backup from the old instance and restore that, but apparently it had already been deleted.

So I'm sorry to everyone that posted anything yesterday, it is unfortunately unrecoverable.

I happened to still have the tab open on my phone with the posts in the Relationships thread.
Should I post screenshots there again?

Damn, one of those tab people :P

Just as you like I guess, I am not too bothered, for some it might be important though :)

There's nothing you could have done. It's nice to see it's all back up successfully now.
