Everyone forgets about backups and thinks they’re not ‘necessary’ until stuff like this happens. Nice cautionary tale, and I hope other companies look into whether they’re keeping backups for their own sites and systems after reading it.

Still, nice you managed to recover the information. I mean, it’s one of those cases where just one minor issue (like no one having visited a certain page) could have left you in a far worse situation.
