Server backup data
I am the administrator of a website and stupidly deleted most of my files from the server, about 2 weeks ago. I have been back and forth with the website host to see if they can recover. They did confirm that servers are backed up regularly, but there is no guarantee that my files could be recovered. Today they told me there is nothing they could do to recover them. I am sick and worried about this. Lots of historical data lost.
But anyway my question is if i deleted the files the evening of 7/27, they tried to recall back to 7/23. They are telling me that my missing files are not there either. That my directory of files looks the same on 7/27 as it does on 7/23. Could that be possible? Its like they are implying that the files werent there to begin with. I am just not ready to believe what they are telling me and not giving up. Is there anything else I could ask them to do to try to find the files?
