Hi @hosthover ,

This sounds like a human error with catastrophic outcomes. Unfortunately DO will not be able to provide your data back I think.
To prevent this kind of issues / failures make sure you always prepare for this. By for example taking the following measurements:

  • Analyse your systems and determine your critical / valuable assets
  • Always backup valuable data (if possible at multiple locations)
  • Create an automated process for disaster recovery
