Google Drive users are experiencing issues with files mysteriously disappearing from the service.

Some users on Google's support forums claim to have lost six or more months of work.

The problem has been ongoing for a few days, with users finding their files reverted to a state from May 2023.

Some users reported that synchronization stopped working, leading to out-of-date cloud storage.

Limited advice for affected users is to avoid making changes until engineers provide a solution.

There are speculations about the issue possibly being related to accounts being spontaneously dropped.

Google support allegedly advised against making changes to the root/data folder during the investigation.

Users have managed to recover some information by manipulating cached files.

The cause of the problem is unclear, and users are awaiting an official response from Google.

The incident serves as a reminder that relying on cloud storage doesn't guarantee the safety of files.
