In a reported event today, Google notified about receiving complaints from Users of finding their accounts empty. This happened due to some sort of Software Bugs on Gmail server while making an update to it. User percentage who are affected is as near as 0.02 but as we know there are billions of users, this figure matters.
Backup tapes and software workaround is already being started by Google. Google is working for around30 Hours to restore all of this.
” If you were affected by this issue, it’s important to note that email sent to you between 6:00 PM PST on February 27 and 2:00 PM PST on February 28 was likely not delivered to your mailbox, and the senders would have received a notification that their messages weren’t delivered.” – Google.
