Just one question : how can this be possible ?

I am worried because of our own server at work. I am using a small Berliner company and I like working with them because they are friendly and always on the phone for me for the slightest problem, even a night and on weekends. I know nothing of technics.

I thought that it is sufficuent that backups be provided for. Isn't it true ?

Definitely NOT TRUE. We originally relied upon the host-provided backup feature. But if the host has any kind of major crash, that kills the backup as well.

Therefore you really ought to have your own 'off-line' backup stored. We learned that the hard way. I'd recommend you inquire about that soon.
