Hotmail lost its data

Posted by David Khoirul
Fortunately, I'm not an active user of Hotmail, a web mail service owned by Microsoft. I store all important email communications on Gmail, or sometimes on Yahoo!

Hotmail was reported to lose its data, wiping the emails of a number its users, leaving their inbox empty.

In what is almost certainly a date bug, users upon logging in were greeted with a completely sanitized inbox and new-user welcome screen, similar to what those who haven't used the service for 270 days see when their data is summarily deleted.

Had I been on Hotmail, I would have possibly lost my draft data such as passwords, blog backups, and other important files.
