Hi,

Please change the title of your topic, that is related to your question/issue, so that other users will be able to find their question/issue using the search engine.

Have you recently backed up your forum?

Ok. I restored a backup of 2 days ago and everything SEEMED ok.

I obviously had a topic DOUBLED (with the new posts and old posts).

So I merged the 2 subforums and again I got only 7 pages.

What should I do?

It's a topic inside a subforum.

When I restore I found 2 "same topics". 1 with the first 73 pages.
The second one with apparently 8 pages, but they seem to be 3.
If I merge them I get 8 pages total and not 80.
I did this twice. Same behaviour.

They are the first 2 topics in this forum: http://forum.zibri.org/f4-agif

I locked the big one now to avoid any problems.

Do you have any clue?

Can I download a full backup of the forum (just in case) ?

Why would you need a backup? The topics are not deleted.

That's unfair. Even the evil google allows to dump all your data before signing off.

I did. But it's still unfair.
I have no intention of leaving forumotion, but I hope you will understand your mistake. (Or that a lwayer, sooner or later will make you)
