I don't believe they deleted it, wasn't it that the storage device on
which it was kept died?
I'd never treated the space as something to rely upon but as a nice
extra that came thrown in with the hosting deal. I was slightly upset
that I'd lost the backups but if they were *that* important I'd have
also kept a copy elsewhere (the backup space is accessible from outside
their network after all) and my VM didn't fail during the 24hrs I had no
Over all I'm very pleased.
