Backups for SpiraTest

Is there any way to retrieve data that's been deleted in SpiraTest?

We recently had an accidental deletion of test cases in SpiraTest, and there was no way to retrieve the deleted data back.  It appears that SpiraTest does not give a warning before it deletes any data.

Hi Tammy

All delete operations in SpiraTest prompt you to confirm the deletion ("Are you sure you want to delete {type of artifact}?").

In addition, if an Administrator goes to the Administration > Projects > Project History Changes, they can Revert back any delete that was done.

Thanks, Adam.  I'll give it a try.  Not being the one who did the deleting, I'm only reporting what was relayed to me.  Fingers crossed on the recovery!
