    So I nuked my system to get rid of the crypto miner that was squatting and I could not get rid of. He's gone, I'm happy.

    Restoring my system... where's my data folder?!

    Which data folder are you referring to? Linux user data folder? That's normally in /home/<your-username>

    In Windows, it's normally in C:\Users\<your-username>

    So yeah, board looking a little barren now. Most everything is coming back to life, but gonna have to figure
    out how to get my old board data back.

    Worse case I think I still have my WinXP copy of SBBS somewhere. Could restore those older files, and
    re-poll all the board echo's.


    you didnt zip it up?

    I know right? simple tar czf data command and for some reason I either forgot or something didn't sync correctly. It was a horrible oversight. I REALLY am not losing much other than some history, most of the message echos can be polled again from vert or my NC, so I'm NOT that upset. Losing my userbase was a blow, so I'm hoping I can find my WinXP data folder. It'll be a few years old, but at least I can restore SOME of it.

    Yeah that would be a good idea, although you don't actually need a
    script. Just copy the directory somewhere.

    Why risk it? I made a cron job that backs up daily, weekly, monthly and annually to my cloud drive and local NAS. Was easy, and now it runs automatically. I can set it up to ping my cell phone or post to my Discord when it fails to complete.

    you should be backing it up off site every week. it's not that hard

    Well, yeah, OK... But you didn't think to do that before you "nuked
    your system"? Doesn't make much sense to me.

    Me either, but here we are. So I'm not the best system admin, at least my crypto issues are gone (so far).

    We live in a world where Trump was President for 4 years, and
    this doesn't make much sense?

    That is correct. It doesn't make *any* sense, actually.

    Very weak attempt to inject politics into something that shouldn't be political, too. Additional points deducted for replying to a 6-week-old
    post. Overall, a massive failure in multiple ways.
