You should NOT use power cycle or shutdown from the site, they do recommend using the terminal because the site basically does a hard reboot, they warn you that you can lose data. Sad to see them not being able to shutdown safely though! <br> <br>Note: only shutdown/reboot from site if you’re having problems such as SSH not connecting, droplet frozen, droplet malfunctioning etc.

<b>“… but I do not come back to digitalotsean anymore.”</b> <br> <br>Where are you going to go? Even the mighty Google and Amazon have lost user’s data in the past. <br> <br><b>“… but I do not have backups.”</b> <br> <br>That’s a hard lesson we’ve all learned, buddy. Next time, when working w/valuable data, make sure you maintain a local copy via <a href=“http://duplicity.nongnu.org/”>duplicity</a>, <a href=“http://rsync.samba.org/”>rsync</a> or <a href=“http://www.techpage3.com/2013/01/using-dropbox-from-command-line-on-your.html”>Dropbox</a>.

I very much hope that you will be able to do something, but I do not have backups.
