The recent Gmail data loss
As many of your might already know that, recently Gmail server had a problem that affected approximately 150,000 Gmail users.
They lost all their emails in Gmail. Google is working on the data restore, but so far over 5 days already now, Gmail is still not back for everyone.
Google might will be able to restore all the emails for everyone in the end, but it’s still horrific, isn’t it?
You should have local backup of your cloud data, Gmail included
Cloud service is very convenient, and has been very common and popular nowadays.
And most of the time, your data is safe in the cloud, but not when the cloud service is having a glitch.
So, you should backup your cloud data, before it’s too late. And IMHO, have a local copy of your online data is the best way.
And that’s why I have developed Gmail Keeper for backing up Gmail and Google Apps emails and labels.
