Gmail accidentaly resets some accounts

 

A reported 150,000 Gmail users have had their entire Gmail account wiped clean. Evidently it is not clear why this has happened, and Google is keeping quiet about it, but they have said that this ‘bug’ has affected only 0.08% of Gmail users. Those of you who haven’t backed their Gmail up and have experienced this might just have lost their entire email contents. Google do say this issue will be resolved, but they aren’t giving any clear dates or resolutions at present.

Years worth of messages, attachments, Google Chat (Gchat) logs are part of the items that were wiped clean. Essentially those of you who have been affected by it will be presented with what looks like a ‘new’ Gmail account, complete with ‘Welcome to Gmail’ emails. We can only hope this gets resolved quickly, if possible, and normal services resume in the near future.
