    Default HDD Crash No Backup

    My hard drive crashed recently and needless to say, like all fools, I
    never backed up my sites offline. I tried using the "File/new/create
    from a existing web site", but all I get generated is either a
    Index.html or a home.html file thats not related to the original site I
    had created. Could you offer some help in this matter? I also downloaded
    all files and folders using FTP, but when I access the files in Fusion,
    it doesn't recognize them because they're not in Fusion format. Any help
    would be grateful.

    I also tried importing from the downloaded file starting with
    index.html. I get html code, but cannot integrate it to the index page.
    I looked up all pull down options but nothing seems to relate to
    combining the external html to the current page. (Now even I'm confused
    in explaining :-\ )

    Regards,
    Dom

    What is the URL of the web site?

    Here is an old thread explaining how to generate a page from raw html

    Here is another thread explaining why it does not work very well.

    *Well,,,,, not so much a fool, but merely thoughtless. Duh! I suddenly
    remembered that I have older Norton backups and found the Fusion user
    folder of several weeks old. I'm back in business with having only one
    session of do over work. It pays to backup to a CD. I had changed my
    backup options in Norton to backup to the HDD because the process of
    inserting a CD was inconvenient. Big mistake!!! The backup was corrupted
    along with the crash. I have now learned my lesson the hard way.

    Dominick,

    I suspect everyone on this forum has experienced a HDD failure at some point and learnt the backup lesson from that. I know I did!

    Aside from your Norton backup regime may I suggest you do the following as a matter of course whenever you make any changes to a NOF site:-

    1. Check for unused masterborders and delete any that are not required.
    2. Go into Assets view and delete all unused assets.
    3. Go into Site View and do a site re-optimise.
    4. Still in Site View export the entire site as a template (creates a zip file)
    5. Rename the ZIP file and add the date in DDMMYY format.
    6. Upload the template zip file to a folder on your server (and to any other medium you want).

    That way you will always have a usable recovery file.

    Wouldn't it be great if there was only a single browser to worry about!!!
