Disk failure - some posts lost

Postby Allan » 01 Apr 2013, 16:25

A server disk containing all of the forums failed at about 11am on April 1st (really!!). The data has been recovered from backups but some recent posts may have been lost. There was one from Joe Le Taxi that's vanished for sure. There may be others.

Any private messages sent late March 31st or on the morning of April 1st could have been lost too.

Apologies for any inconvenience. Apparently the backup was just 21 hours old and that includes the night-time period so we will have lost very little. We were lucky, the forum is only fully backed up once a week so we could have lost 7 days-worth of posts if the timing had been different.
