I am currently in scramble mode as I attempt to get my server back up and running. Today the old hard drive failed and all the information on it was not recovered. My hosting company offers a fairly economical backup solution that would have allowed me to have the server recovered and back up in running in about 60 minutes. As I thought I would never need it, I didn’t utilize it.
Boy, was I ever wrong.
I have been building and running websites for about 8 years and it was all contained on that server. While I have some backups, a large portion of my data was lost on that dead drive. So I am swatting myself in the head for not making backups a consistent part of my daily/weekly/monthly schedule.
Now I have a huge project…. rebuilding everything that was lost.
Stay tuned… I will keep everyone updated!
