Not long ago we experienced a fatal error in our DataStore component which was followed by an uninstall.
After reinstalling it, the error was gone and so is the data of course.
We managed to restore the old one but without having the Portal items for every since piece of the data in the DataStore it's all useless and inaccessible.
So I was wondering, what use do I have for a test environment of a Portal if I cannot take the production environment and duplicate it as a test env'? did anyone ever tried this before? is there a way to recreate items and services for the DataStore content??
