I Want to Restore from HostGator's Backups, but What If the Backup File Gets Overwritten?
You probably realize that HostGator creates daily, weekly, and monthly backups based on cycles set within the server. Please note that, given what day the server cycles run, the weekly and/or monthly backup(s) could be the same as the daily backup. HostGator keeps one backup of your account, and we replace that backup with a new one during these cycles.
So, you are afraid when you request the backup file, and it will be too late to get the old file. Never fear!
