Site downtime HDD failed loss of data

4.2
Last night our servers hard drive failed. This in turn made us lose all the data stored on the HDD.



Unfortunately,we were unable to pull any data from the failed drive ourselves. Because of this, we have had to resort to using our latest back up which dates back to January 5th 2011.

This means:
-Any new members who signed up must sign up again
-Any posts made have been lost
-If you paid for gold, is has been lost. (We are working on a solution for this.)

In other words, all data from the 5th until now has been lost. We are still waiting to hear if this data can be pulled from the HDD.



Luckily, we have been able to get the server back up very fast, but the downloads and video areas will both be closed until they are checked for loss or damage.

TheTechGame may have server issues on and off over the next few hours because the server has not yet been fully optimized to be able to deal with the traffic.

This sucks for all TTG users, including staff. So please try and help us by reposting anything you may have lost and reporting any bugs you may find.

If you are having gold membership issues please PM a member of staff who will forward your message to an admin who can deal with it.
