When you restore your forum to a earlier date, you lost any post created after the restore date and new members.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

I read it, but I didn't quite understand the part about making 2 backups to save the newer stuff.

For example let says you have these dates has restore dates:
April 30, 2012
May 20, 2012
May 30, 2012
June 8, 2012

If you pick May 30 as the restore date, you then have to go back and restore it to June 8 to reclaim the lost posts and members between May 30 - June 8. There are different types of restores: full, messages, members, etc.

Sorry I tried to mark it earlier, but the flood control wouldn't let me and I forgot.
