Offer backup option for catastrophic UI/Terminus operations

Recently, we had a situation before going live where a client was doing content entry on the TEST env. We had initialized LIVE and then something made a deployment to TEST.

“Pull files and the database from the Live environment?” was checked and we lost a bunch of data because LIVE in our case was older than TEST.

For certain operations in the UI/Terminus, could Pantheon offer an option to “Create a backup before proceeding with this operation”? Or maybe that should be the default?

Thank you for sharing your feature request with us, Joel! :pray: We meet with our Product Team monthly to surface feedback and feature requests like this that come through our community, so I will make sure to share this with the team, and if I can provide an update, I will. Thanks again! :smiley:

Thanks for taking a look!
