Google Accidentally Deletes User Email, Contacts

Google accidentally deleted all of the emails and contacts from about 150,000 Gmail user accounts on Monday. While many of the Gmail users that lost their data are still stuck without, Google said it is working to restore the missing content and already has some users back up and running.

According to the Internet search giant, the data outage is impacting less than .08 percent of its customers.

“Today’s issue shows that Gmail is far from perfect and Google should do a better job at communicating with users,” Google Operating System blog owner Alex Chitu told BBC News.

Google hasn’t said how long it may take to get email and contact data restored for Gmail users.
