We have a little-used website built in GoDaddy that shows my wife's pottery. On a recent check we discover that almost all of the many images that we uploaded to the site have vanished. Are they hidden from view somehow or do we need to rebuild the website? Thanks.
Since you mention "little used" could it be the site was on an old version of website builder and then eventually updated by GoDaddy? Did you receive any notices in this regard?
There is no hidden feature -- something must of happened on the application side to cause this. Contacting GoDaddy support would be the best approach to find out what you are dealing with before you spend the time to rebuild (or move or upgrade platforms.)
