You probably realize that HostGator only keeps one backup of your account, and we replace that backup with a new backup once a week.
So, you are afraid when you request the backup file, it will be too late to get the old file. Never fear!
Simply join our Live Chat or call us. We will copy the backup file to a safe location where it will not be erased. Then you can submit your restore request and specify to use the week-old backup we saved.
