# Disaster Recovery

Danger

If the database is deleted or corrupted, all payloads for the node are lost. You cannot recover a lost database without a backup.

Orion stores all payload information in an internal database. The database location is specified by the workdir and storage properties in the configuration file.

If the Orion configuration file has the following entries:

workdir = /orionNode
storage = leveldb:data


The level db database is located in /orionNode/data

When using Orion in production, we recommend that you have a backup strategy and a data redundancy setup.
