Thanks to everyone who responded about Dreamhost losing my website.
They have restored my text but cannot find the directory w/ my images and graphics. This is
still a tremendous loss. I have published 1291 posts, each with approximately 5 images.
That is a total of 6455 (lost) images. An Art/Design website w/ no images is useless.
I was getting 500 unique hits per day, now it is less than 10.
I must move on. From now on, regardless of the web hosting
company, I will do my own backups religiously.
I cannot stay w/ DH. Can someone suggest a better web hosting
company? Any suggestions for an efficient way to backup a wordpress
sites w/ a lot of images (jpeg files)?
