Looking at those links it looks like it was in it'* own area like tech info was. It looks like it was in a area called registry. So unless Rick has it in the backup, it was lost just as tech info.

Exactly Dan, without a (php) in the link it was definitely just on the server but not in the php database...... just like the old chat and Tech Info. Still nice work RJ. I wonder if it does exist on a "time machine image" of the internet. Seems it would be one small e-needle in a haystack.

if you know the exact link to get to it, you MIGHT get lucky.

I found the registry and have copied the last known "capture" of it. 800+ members, cars, descriptions, alot of photos. I have also found our old tech info but haven't a clue on how to copy over 2500 "articles" good grief

Man, even the pictures on the site that were "hosted" are all captured on that site. This could mean we could very well completely rebuild alot of things. The big (huge) problems is being able to retrieve it all on a page by page basis. I'm wondering if I can get any help from that sites Admins with recapturing this stuff, like A FTP transfer or?
