Don't you have a copy on your hard drive?

Everybody's gotta learn to backup the hard way....

Well, most of the good hosting providers perform weekly to monthly backups for you...sorry. :(

Really, don't get me wrong, I understand your point, and trust me I've been in it before I did my own company, anyways. It's VERY important you keep a copy of it, and you should have a copy of it somewhere on your hard drive.
If not, hope they may have it still. Or move to a company that informs users they make backups, etc.

Well, if you don't have the space to keep storing backups on your computer, I recommend using http://www.adrive.com

you can't blame anyone for that, it's a free hosting after all.. just got to be careful next time, do a weekly backup, or set a cronjob for backing up your datas.
at least you learnt something =)

Even if you pay for hosting, you should keep backups on your hard drive.

Yes - I know of too many situations where a paid host dropped the ball on backups! Besides, from a risk management standpoint, it really is your job to look after your data.

whether it is free host or paid host, it is still better for you to keep a backup urselves. when it come to file this important, trust nobody.

Oh my, it's very bad...
In another time, don't forget to back-up your site periodically.

They are YOUR files, therefore YOUR responsibility to make sure you have up to date backups.

Trust me that hurts. I lost my site because I forgot to backup.
