MySQL does not keep backup's of databases. Most third part applications such as cpanel all have their own backup method but
when it comes down to it when you have drop a table in MySQL thats it. its gone :/

Yes its true that mysql does not do automatic backup. With respect to your MySql TA question, I was suggesting to do a system restore. (if it is possible)
