Hy guys!
I've been away from the site for quite some time and returned yesterday(29th Jan 2011) I had a problem with a friends laptop so put a Question into Tech support forum.
I had received one reply and replied back to that poster but today I logged in and my thread was gone as if it had never been there in the first place, I checked my posts to see if it had been moved but it is not in there, I then checked the other members posts to see if his response to my thread was in his posts and that is not there either. Did I make some big clanger that got the thread removed? and if so how come no notification of any wrongdoing? I'm totally puzzled as to what happened here!

There was some site maintenance done last night, it's possible your thread didn't make it into the backup. I checked, you didn't do anything wrong.

Backups are only used to recover from a server disaster... Yes there was probably a backup done during the maintenance, but typically if a server is taken offline for maintenance there is a hardware upgrade/swap or system cleaning. System backups occur automatically and require no downtime.
