Hello luiz1877,

You can use the Utilities to perform a backup of your forum.

If you do a full restore, you will lost any new members and messages created after the restored date.

Hi,

I just wanted to mention that you can do a backup to an earlier date. What you'd do is a full backup to your chosen date and then you would select a 'members and posts' backup and then restore it to the most recent date you can.

You'd perhaps, depending on how active your forum was, loose some members/posts but it wouldn't be as much.

Just make sure you pay attention to the dates.

You can read a full, in-depth guide here: http://help.forumotion.com/t64905-how-does-a-backup-work?highlight=backup
