Uh-oh, Backify cloud storage disappears, along with lots of data. What can be done now?
dbrown 2 years ago
Ok, so I signed up for Backify's service last month - 5 bucks for 512GB of cloud storage seemed too good to pass up. So I didn't pass, and the only "too good" turned out "to be true". As far as I can tell, everything is just gone, poof, like a bad magic trick. I don't think I actually lost much if anything, but that is only because not much time passed since I started using Backify, and all my stuff was saved on memory sticks and a few SD cards. It is still a pain because the data is dispersed, but I feel sorry for anyone who actually depended on Backify. Does anyone know of a way to recover the data that was "in the cloud"?
