A storage software update caused thousands of Gmail users to lose access to their e-mail Monday and Google was forced to go to its physical backup tapes to fully restore users' data. Monday evening, Google's vice president for engineering and site reliability czar Ben Treynor wrote that most users' access had been restored. Treynor said that users' information was never erased, but that the bug did destroy several copies of the data. Google is well-known for its comprehensive disaster recovery plan, which came in handy Monday as the company had to leave the cloud to get the data.

Any of you Bleepers lose access to Gmail yesterday? Not I.
