Well… now that it’s been about a week without my forums being available I’ve finally seen results!! I was able to sucessfully restore 99% of the forums to the previous state..and the only things missing are avatars and the RC7 update (you know, the one that caused all of this is the first place)! Today, before I do¬†more homework, I will try installing the update AGAIN. If this doesn’t work, I still have my backup, but it might be a while before I have the time to do real work again.

You can view The Forums at [mntcomputers.com/forums2.0] … and you can view progress updates here.
Thanks for support and such,
