Long story short:
left a section of my forum to be edited by the users. One of them edited some information I really needed. Now I want it back badly. I have a back up of the forum with the information, but its from 3 months ago and I don't know If I can restore my forum to todays backup afterwards. If anyone has tried it pls share your experience. bwi

If you back up to forum to an earlier date, I believe you can not then back it up again to a later date.

what exactly did they edit? If it's a post that was edited then it wont matter if you back the forum up or not you can not get the post back to it's original state before the edit took place..

He edited his own topic. But isn't that the initial idea of a backup, to be able to retrieve all the information from a certain date? scratch
