hi please can some one help. It looks like someone has been into our system over night and deleted all our products and categories. The last backup by the previous webmaster was done in 2005 which is no help at all to us. Is there any way we can restore to an earlier point yesterday to retrieve the missing settings?

Check with your host. If they are a good one they periodically backup databases.

Backup before making changes. Backup before making changes! Backup before making changes!!

 

You did do a backup? eh?

Yes--my host does backups every 24 hours so that is your best bet

"I must admit that I personally measure success in terms of the contributions an individual makes to her or his fellow human beings."

---Margaret Mead---

 

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer -- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.

--Ken Kesey"

You should also create daily backups and store them on your system.
