Google Restoring Gmail Accounts After Buggy Update

0

gmail.jpgGoogle apologized last night for a bug that deleted e-mails and contacts for about 40,000 Gmail users. All the data will be restored soon.

The technical difficulties were caused by a storage software update bug, which affected 0.02 percent of Gmail’s 200 million users. When Google discovered the problem, the company immediately reverted to the old version.

The bug affected several backups as well, so Google has been restoring the data from offline tapes, which is a much longer process than transferring information from another data center.

Google Calendar also suffered from missing data last week.
