Sorry to hear!
Fortunately, you have actually been backed up, at least in part, by
Archive.org. A very useful resource, which has helped us recover a
number of "poofed" sites as well as in a lawsuit to prove that the
defendant (our client) had NOT changed the wording on their site after
They don't do as well with database-driven sites, but luckily your sites
structure allowed them to grab all the pages I looked for. You may need
to restore attached documents.
Let me know if you need some assistance. I'm currently between
contracts and might be able to give a hand.
