It is not that often that I make a silly mistake -
last night however - after working over 43 hours without sleep I did a nice duzy

rm -rf /var/lib/mysql instead of rm -rf /var/lib/mysql/directory-i-needed-to-wack

R1soft to the rescue ! - if your not using CDP you should be
While yes - I could have restored a number of other ways - I literally had a snapshot of just 8 minutes prior to my blunder done @ 4:08AM Est.

Imagine that the 4AM Backup was ready to go !:p

Yes, really it is a great piece of software/application to use for automated - no headache/ no load generated - backups.

The only question I would like to have is when r1soft will implement the possibility of restoring db`s for cpanel users [?]. I know there ere several requests, but there is an ETA for CDP 3.* which possibly will permit this feature?

Thanks,
Lehel
