    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

    r1soft has saved my butt and many of our users over the past year too. Well worth the money spent! Glad to hear that you were able to recover without much loss.

    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
