OK, so something weird happened over the weekend and I lost all my StationPro options (The feature options are still there). Is there a file/location I can go to in order to restore these? I have not been using the back up feature other than what my Domain Hosting provides.

If it's backed up through your hosting provider that might be the best way to go. Did you lose the interface as well or just the options?

The interface went as well. I've tried doing a restore from the hosting site but I can't get everything back to as it was as of Friday's date. Should I just be restoring the StationPro Theme folder or is there other folders/files that need to come along with it?

if you just lost the options, you may just want to hit the 'restore options to default' button and add back what you lost. Any idea why the options disappeared? Did you do anything that could have caused that?

I was hoping to avoid "adding back" the options I lost as there was a significant amount of custom CSS that I had put in place. In digging around, it looks as though that information is stored in the mySQL database (?) which unfortunately was not backed up. I'm sure as heck not paying GoDaddy $150 for them to restore that database back to a specific day and time. I'm not sure what caused the loss in the first place, but lesson learned... get regular backups in place for my database and files.
