Hello,

I have a big problem at the moment :/ I was editing my prefixes (removing and adding some of them) and I edited a prefix I was using for some really important threads but now they just disappear :'( Is there a way to get them back?

Edit : wazs my fault, I forgot that when you select threads and change page, they are still selected :'( now i'm crying

Check Google Cache, and see if they have cached those threads. At the very least, you can rebuild them if you don't have a backup.

It's the type of mistake you only make once... And by mistake I'm not referring to the action of deleting threads. I'm talking about not having a backup. Biggest mistake you can make. I bet you'll be performing regular backups from now on, right?

My schedule's been off lately, but usually I try to take a backup every Friday on KH-Flare.

Haven't taken one since Sunday, September 29, hence the my schedule being off comment.

This is why no mod/admin, including me the site owner, has hard delete enabled on the mod permissions page.

run it daily via cron and have the system set up to keep the last 7 on the server. rsync them to my Mac Desktop and local server (2TB Raid using 10k RPM SCSI drives) and on there I keep a months worth.
