Major bug in Snow Leopard deletes all user data

,----[ Quote ]
| Reports have been cropping up on the Apple 
| Support forums that users have been losing 
| all their data due to a nasty bug in Snow 
| Leopard, Apple's latest Operating System. 
| Many users are reporting that all settings 
| are being reset and most data is gone, 
| according to iTWire.


Snow Leopard bug deletes all user data 

,----[ Quote ]
| Snow Leopard users have reported that 
| they've lost all their personal data when 
| they've logged into a "Guest" account 
| after upgrading from Leopard, according to 
| messages on Apple's support forum.
| The bug, users said in a well-read thread 
| on Apple's support forum, resets all 
| settings on the Mac, resets all 
| applications' settings and erases the 
| contents of critical folders containing 
| documents, photos and music. 


Snow Leopard 'Guest Account' bug deleting user files, terrorizing children?

,----[ Quote ]
| Think your Snow Leopard woes are finally 
| over? Don't go logging into that Guest 
| account, then. A flurry of reports have 
| surfaced around the web explaining that 
| even an accidental login to one's Guest 
| account within Snow Leopard could lead to 
| mass deletion of all user files on the 
| primary account, and when we say "mass 
| deletion," we mean "mass deletion."



Massive Data Loss Bug in Leopard

,----[ Quote ]
| Leopardâs Finder has a glaring bug in its 
| directory-moving code, leading to 
| horrendous data loss if a destination 
| volume disappears while a move operation 
| is in action. I first came across it when 
| Samba crashed while I was moving a 
| directory from my desktop over to a Samba 
| mount on my FreeBSD server.


Bugs & Fixes: Apple TV deletes files

,----[ Quote ]
| Normally, assuming no changes have been 
| made to what is being synced, this should 
| take a matter of seconds. Except this 
| time, something unexpected happens. iTunes 
| begins copying several hundred files to 
| your Apple TV. No error message or warning 
| appears. The files just copy as if you had 
| newly added them to Apple TVâs playlists. 
| This is especially odd because you 
| recognize these files as ones that have 
| been previously synced and should already 
| be on your Apple TV.
| Depending on how much data needs to be 
| copied, and the speed of your network 
| connection, this recopying can take from 
| minutes to hours.
| Making matters worse, the exact same thing 
| may happen again and again, as often as 
| several times a week. It probably doesnât 
| happen every time you launch iTunes. But 
| often enough to be really annoying.
