    You can ask support if they have a backup of it, but I think they charge you a fee for retreiving it.

    Sorry for sounding like a dick, bro, but you REALLY need to maintain backups/restores of your website on your PC. Many ppl see "daily backups" and assume it also means 'free backups and restores.' Nothing can be further from the truth. My last host charged $200/hr to restore files. If you want to see what JagPC charges, go read (and heed) this thread:
