    My client just started using WordPress. Today he noticed a category and long post where missing from his site. He can't really restore the entire database because he's made other changes since the category and post went missing.

    Is there a plugin or best practice to prevent loss of posts?

    Restoring a database shouldn't affect anything but posts, links, cats, etc. So unless that's what you mean by "other changes", it would be fine.

    well, suppose you accidentally delete a post. Not realizing it you continue to post for 3 days. On the third day you realize your post is missing. How do you restore that post without loosing everything since you deleted it? Restoring database would not help here.

    Can't you/he just republish the post with the original timestamp?
