Three years.
I doubt it's there, if there is no activity for 6 months it's usually deactivated/deleted but some times they can stick around longer.

The only way to try to find it would be to log in to forumotion utlities tool

But you will have to log in with the email and password that you created the site with.. if you do not remember the original email and pass, then there will be no way for us to find if it even exist.

But like i said chances are it was deactivated, but if you get in your utilities then your in bam, just hit the option to go to site, and if it comes up as not being then then just do your backup restore and that should do it Smile

So try that out and see what happens.

hehe cool. guitar

you know what else you should always do.
have a topic or something go to your email and just always keep it there,
becuase if you following a topic then the links are always sent to you.

or better yet always copy the activation email and place it in a note pad, or even on a disc for back up.

Heck these days the MS cloud works great for buck up to.
they give you 25 gigs of storage for free and private to.

But man i know how you feel i have done that in the past, and thats before i was ever a mod here or even knew about utilities... lol
Lucky for me i was following a couple threads and had them in my email..

But cool beans man glad to see you have it back Smile

Oh and even if you are just using it for your self for testing or just keeping your own stuff on it, always go and log in once in while so it's still semi active.. i mean man three years. wow thats pretty long

haha yeh i checked emails, i have some now in there though that i will keep.

I think what saved it was the fact that some people were actually active on it in the last 12months, so yay :-)

Thanks again
