We apologise for the continued delay and for the inconvenience caused.

The backup restore commenced at 01:30am and we have checked this is running as expected. There is a huge amount of data to restore, which could unfortunately take a few days to fully complete. If you do have your own backups of your files you can of course upload this if you wish, however at some point it may get overwritten by the backup restore currently running. We do sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.

The new network attached storage device (NAS) has been built and is ready for data to be restored to it. We are currently reviewing the safest and quickest way to do this, and then the restore will be started.

Our systems administrators are not able to repair the filesystem, we are working on building the server again and restoring from backups. This will mean minimal data loss, but any changes made since the last backup run will be lost. The majority of websites will be restored from our backups run at approximately 2am this morning, in some cases these may be from an older date.
If you need clarification for this on a per site basis, contact our support team after this has been completed and we can advise when the site was restored from.
We do apologise for any inconvenience caused here.
