Erhh... do I understand that post correct if I assume that this will be permanent for the old posts, they are gone? If that's the case, it plainly SUCKS!!!Cleglaw_Himself said:Edit: Ahh, just read the top post - Board Corruption. Obviously, too many dupes on this server too!
Full acknowledge. Never heard of a database which deletes itself just for fun. There has to be any actions on this database to do that.Mn_Swe2 said:Erhh... do I understand that post correct if I assume that this will be permanent for the old posts, they are gone?

Corrupt backup... database deleting itself... looks like someone screwed up big time
edit: from the post mentioned by Rushter?: "These thins unfortuantely happen from time to time and are unavoidable no matter what measures you take."
What alot of bullsh**
God damn!!! I assumed that only the posts from the last week or so (since what should have been the last backup) were corrupt, but it looks like we're worse offBattleCookie said:Full acknowledge.

And there is only one backup of the forum? Is it overwritten every time a backup is made? Strange things happen ...
Sorry, i'm not a computer profi, but even i know that this is BS =)
Either my ignorance is playing tricks on me or I'd say it's a coincidence. But.. what do I know--I'm a Diablo II Addict.PhatTrumpet said:All thread replies somehow become corrupt, the backup gets lost, and moments later it's announced that there are two new forums... coincidence?
Hehe, I guess you're right, but I still can't get over the "one-backup, if it doesn't work we're screwed" thingSilvervixen said:Its a shame to lose all our history, but still its the users that make the community not the history.
And i think you should give the guys a brake. I bet they are having a really bad day!
Anything we can do to help out?

Hmmm, looked through it, and the only items it holds with a conection to this site is pic's from theese pages. Like our avatars. I can't find the whole pages with text et.c., so no help from me I'm afraid...Borlag said:Also one other thing to add here...
Check your internet cache files and repost everything that was valuable, such as guides and FAQs (like ZappaSan already did ), I've been doing the same all morning here with my work computer, though I don't have any HC guides on this computer, those are all back at home, provided I don't have it set to delete everything each day
Why rant about things not working when you could make them work again
No, it's the same info I see if I go about it like this, or if I go directly to the folder. Very few html files over all, mostly just small jpegs, as for our avatars and stuff.Borlag said:you looked in it the wrong way then...don't go straight to the folder, go to IE's own menu, tools, internet options, general-page, settings, from there choose view files and scroll through them.
Remember that they are stored there but if you double click them it tries to go to that URL, so you have to manually move the file to another folder and then open it, that way you can check the files...I know it's slow and painful but it's the only way to bring some of the stuff back.
