I read the announcement. This is my first time on the forum support site but I believe this is the correct place for this topic. We'd like a restoration to the latest backup date you have available.

Thank you for your help.

Posting this as the announcement topic instructed.  I'll put the forum into maintenance mode for the time being.

Maintenance mode for your forum. Restoring backup says 1 hour 15 before back

We ran spam cleaning script against forums on sites at
smfforfree.com, smfforfree2.com, smfforfree3.com

Unfortunately it seems in some cases it was too aggressive and removed all posts.

If your forum was affected please open a support forum thread with your forum as that is the only way we will fix it.

The last backup for data is around 9/30 for smfforfree.com smfforforfree2.com
For smfforfree3.com the last valid backup is 9/1

That is the last time I have a backup.
I am not sure what went wrong tested on a couple of forums. I was cleaning any members had links and zero posts.
I am extracing backups now for smfforfree2

Do not post anything in the next couple hours until I let you know. It will take a little bit of work to get the data.
I will overrite the current topics/members/messages table with the backup table.

Looks like I made a major mistake on my spam cleaning script.

Yes all posts are gone as of right now...
Any posts made 9/30 are gone for good.

Please can you explain what 9/30 means in this sentence? Do you mean this was the date of the latest backup so posts after this date are gone, but ones earlier can be restored?

Just logged onto our smf forum and see that all of our posts have vanished. Forum has been operational for about 6 years and we had over 100k posts!

Any idea what caused this and can we please get them back? I have never seen this happen before.

EDIT: stiil says " 130037 Posts in 9856 Topics by 582 Members", but every board says "0 Posts   0 Topics"
