go for it i would love to read it, but resume does not mean anything i am not bickering i love talking IT to people please dont mis understand it.Well the web server appears to be Linux, at least that's what it reports. So we care about inodes and links to inodes.
I'll gladly PM you my resume, I've been an IT Professional for 19 years.
But in the end our bickering won't fix the problem.
ok most appliactions either need user imput to choose where to scan ( on a bit level the application will check the MBR then scan the data its self)"real server operating system" and "contains a master boot record" are mutually exclusive...
Even when using windows, the master boot record is where it finds out where to boot from. The master file record stores the directory index.
And if the MFT does not contain the information, you then have to scan the actual data on the partition looking for files that no longer exist in the MFT.
They may or may not be liable under the terms of their contract and/or applicable law. (How's that for a lawyer response?) At the end of the day, though, what are your damages and what are you likely to recover from them (in the non-data sense)? Deciding to sue somebody is really a business decision when you get right down to it.
If you paid for regular backups and they don't have any, sounds like a breach of contract to me.... and possibly negligence.
Even the loss of data alone is a financial loss. This board with that data attracts thousands of viewers - Scott has been able to sell advertising space because of this traffic.
Regardless of a lawsuit though, we still loose all this data.
Best solution would be some sort of recovery.... I suppose I should let you IT guys decide if that's viable though.
Come on man ....Are you talking about the forum data issue, or the Obama presidency?
"Oh my" is right. If the hosting company cannot recover to a point in time, even a month old or more, they are ****ing incompetent.
This is terrible, and I warned. Jokingly I said I had dreams of this. Someone suggested I needed viagra, I didn't take it personally but now who's lolz'ing ? Backup is one of the most under-appreciated responsibilities of IT, until it kicks you square in the gonads.
Hopefully Scott can get something tangible and we can resume. I'm ready to throw in a donation to the forum if it goes toward setting up a proper contingency, offsite backup, swing server and so forth.
Damn, sorry for the troubles Scott. If there is anything I can do to help, please email me. I did backup and recovery professionally for 6 years but haven't been active since '03. I have redhat and ubuntu boxes ready to roll if you need more resources to draw from.
then on top of that they offer free backup for a year LOLOLOLHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAAHHAHA OFMG i would be headed down there with a shotgun.....Posted By: Robert Allen Date: Fri Aug 07, 2009 @ 12:41 pm

1. I set up an account with you to host my site. Backup was included in the package.
2. Your people migrated my site to a larger sever. Backup was not migrated.
3. Your people deleted a 600mb SQL file instead of the log files.
4. I am now without anything.
Does that about sum it up?
Your employees gross negligence have now ruined my site.
No slap on the hand? Just an OOPS! Sorry about that?
Sincere apologies only go so far.
Please at least try to make this right. Do the right thing, and if you can't, bump me up to someone that can.
