    Server issues and lost posts.

    While it has been a rough couple of days and I have been hoping that we could recover after the hard drive crash, it seems there is no way to recover the data. For that I am sorry. The server we are on had a hard drive that was bad, which caused the second hard drive to become read only so that there would be no data lose. The problems was we has a similar problem a couple weeks back, and the tech moved our database from one drive to the other not realizing the underlying problem. So when the problem occurred this time, the database and the backup were on the same drive. So the only one they could recover was the database from the 26th of January as it was on the good drive. They were able to get the forum back online in less then a day, but as it was on the two weeks previous. Unfortunately the error was also causing problems with the backups that we were downloading and they were corrupt for the last two weeks. Again, I am very sorry for the lost posts and the downtime and rest assured I will be looking into options so it does not happen in the future. So now you know the rest of the story.

    I see you have 3 posts total now, so there shouldn't be a need for it anymore.
