    I should mention that that database is now a big fat 0mb and my weather site no longer has any data that was acquired over the last year'ish, 107mb worth..............

    Hello @Bashy,

    I moved this post to it's own separate thread, as the mysqldump error message doesn't appear related to the metadata rebuild. Here's the error message in-question:

    To clarify, are you saying the database referenced in the backup log is now at 0MB after the backup process? That shouldn't happen, as the backup attempt should only attempt to copy the MySQL database as opposed to it modifying the database itself.

    Instead, the error message suggests one of the tables in that database is corrupt. MySQL documents how to repair tables at:

    MySQL :: MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual :: 2.11.3 Rebuilding or Repairing Tables or Indexes

    Thank you.
