At SoftForge we regularly test our website restore systems to see that they are functioned properly.
When creating a new client site we do it in such a way that the old information is not deleted, so for a limited period of time should you need to check the old site you can.
Backups give you peace of mind but they can also become a headache if they fall into the wrong hands.
SoftForge creates all of their client backups of the web tree meaning your backups are not susceptible to being discovered.
They are stored in a secure third party system and each clients site backup is individually password protected.
