None of my account is gone.
Also, I bet many of people insulting Gmail in big blogs' comments with sentences like "I lost all my data! Google sucks I go back to Yahoo!" are trollers who lost nothing.

Anyway there are also people who lost data, temporarly.

Fortunately I haven't been affected by either of the outages recently. It's scary that it's happening though. I doubt many people would actually leave because of it.

Backupify is taking advantage of the situation and offering a years free Backupify Pro 100

A friend of mine has been affected. No emails in her inbox. Could chat with her and had still access to her account. Could receive and send mail. And since this morning: Email bouncing because the account was dactivivated

Googlle's update today:

<< Update (3/1 12:20 PM PST): Data for the remaining 0.012% of affected users has been successfully restored from tapes and is now being processed. We plan to begin moving data into mailboxes in 2 hours, and in the hours that follow users will regain access to their data. Accounts with more mail will take more time. >>
