    Does anyone happen to know if EMBC take backups of sites hosted on their web servers? I've just deleted a file I really need and the backup I have is out of date. Completely my fault and such a stupid mistake. I wasn't thinking.

    I don't know about those in particular, but most half decent web hosts do.
    Give them a call

    I would hope so and embc contract says data should never be lost.

    Will they restore it is another matter.

    They can only do a full disaster recovery restore and that is of all the server and not individual sites/files.

    Unfortunately you'll find most web-hosting companies have this stance, else they'd be spending most of their time restoring data. They'll state in the TOC to make your own personal backups.

    Yep! I don't blame them for it, it was my fault and I take full responsibility. I've learnt from the mistake now.
