News: Some Google Drive users have apparently lost months' worth of files

From: zdnet.com

Google Drive is the default cloud storage option for many people, and it's long been regarded as one of the most secure methods. But in recent days, numerous reports of trouble have surfaced -- with some users claiming to have lost months' worth of files.

The issue seems to have first been reported a little less than a week ago on Google's official support forum, with a user writing that many of their Drive files have disappeared, and their Drive structure reverted to how it looked in May of this year. The user said that no files were deleted manually, and that the missing files weren't showing up anywhere, even in the trash. Searching through audit logs showed no activity, and the files had simply vanished.

Even going through the recovery process recommended by Google support didn't help, the user wrote, calling it a "horrible problem" that had no answer.
