After reading everyone's comments and concerns from our latest poll I have a compromise that I hope everyone will find acceptable. Again, please vote here regarding the issue. It is important to us to get community feedback regarding this. People also wondered if stopping daily backups would speed the servers up... yes it would. Even though we do incremental backups there are a lot of changes done on the free servers everyday, the backups can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. Here is the new plan: * Full server backups made monthly. * MySQL databases backed up daily with 20 restore points. For most webmasters MySQL is what actually stores the important data, all your forum threads, blog posts, stats, etc... Hopefully by backing these up on a daily basis we can make everyone feel more comfortable about not doing full backups. Sorry for the second poll regarding the subject but it is important we get your feedback on this. Thanks!
