Google Files Are Going Missing From Your Desktop App? It's A Bug
Recently, Google Drive users have been reporting that their files have disappeared from the service
Google Drive is a cloud-based file storage service developed by Google.
Since none of the files were deleted manually by the users, the files were also not found in the recycling bin feature and cannot be recovered (so far).
Users think the files disappeared because of a hacker attack
However, that's not the case. Google confirms that the issue originated from the Google Drive app for desktop, affecting both Windows and Mac users. The browser version of the service remains unaffected.
Besides that, a bug was also found to eliminate data from the Google Drive account
Google said the issue occurs due to a syncing problem in the recently released versions (v188.8.131.52 through 184.108.40.206) of Drive.
Google Drive users are advised to back up all important files
The company advises users to avoid disconnecting their Google account from Drive on desktop and tampering with the 'DriveFS' folder locally stored on their machines.
