    That is not an answer to the question i asked!

    The question I asked was:

    Will you make available the facility to do a full website backup & restore???

    Or do we have to consider alternative solutions.

    If you ask the question on your "Help" section you get this answer:

    "We automatically back up all Wild Apricot accounts on a daily basis and store the backups at a location separate from our data center. These backups protect your data from catastrophic threats to our data center, and can be used to restore lost data only in the case of emergency. These backups are not available to clients."

    This Subject was started in 2008 it is now 7 years since this question of Website backup was raised.

    Why have you not provided a Backup & restore facility yet???.

    I would have thought that 7 years would have been more than enough time for your software technicians to create a backup & restore facility for the users of your software.

    We recently had a disgruntled webmaster who before resigning from being webmaster completely destroyed our website, moved all the pages into the trash bin then emptied it. We were left with a website with no content.

    It has taken me & a few others 3 months to rebuild our website completely from scratch.

    Will you ever provide a backup & restore facility that we can do ourselves???

    If you cannot or will not provide this facility, do we have to consider moving away from WA to building & hosting our our own website where we will have complete control over full backup & restore.
