    These suggestions should be posted in JIRA. As the original issue is resolved and we're completely off track here, I am going to close the thread.

    There stands a good idea, like a great stonewall.

    It doesn't. As we stated earlier in the thread, if you don't know what it does or how to use it, don't touch it unless you were told to run it. I liked PossumX's example:

    It's almost like running commands in SSH really. If you don't know what it does, you shouldn't use it, at least not until you've done further research on it or asked somebody about it

    Because it's always been so isn't really a valid answer for not improving the software - but hey, it's your software, I'm just a customer.

    VB should try being a bit more understanding - this software used to be much more beginner friendly than it is now.

    Must be an old car - I have dashboard warnings for both of those issues.

    But sure, a backup is always a cool and useful idea. And also no need for getting rude.

    I gotta admit i don't usually jump on the band wagon but in this case....I understand the OP's feelings as there are no instructions to or not to use that feature and by the same rule if you have gone dedicated you need at least a smattering of server savvy, the simple fact that /temp was completely filled was bad server management on both the OP's and Hosts behalf, i have used that feature in admincp maybe a dozen times in the 3 years i've owned a license with no issue whatsoever, so i have to agree with the above........Stand up and be counted for your shortfalls!

    Unreal, running commands that you don't know what they do. Bridges are everywhere, but that doesn't mean you should jump off them because there us no sign saying not to.

    You made the mistake, not vB software.

    Be accountable for YOUR actions! ...and always have backups.

    Ditto! This should be done at LEAST once a day
