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 
the fact.






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.
