    Data losses in Snow Leopard bug

    Users of the new Apple operating system Snow Leopard are experiencing massive data losses when logging into their machines under a guest account.

    The problem appears to affect those who had a guest account enabled before upgrading to Snow Leopard.

    Users have in some cases lost their entire main profile, including sites, pictures, videos and documents.

    The problem, reported by more than 100 users on discussion forums, surfaced shortly after the OS's August release.

    The issue follows closely on the heels of vast data losses by the Sidekick handset in the US, whose software was designed by Microsoft subsidiary Danger.

      Could be worse.

      Their laptops could have put on weight or the little glowing apple logo could have stopped working.

      So am I!

      Anyway, we're only picking on Mac users, and I wouldn't expect to find any of them on an IT forum.

      I'm having a tough time deciding which of these is the Post of the Day, but since it's the same author, I'll just rep one of them and be done with it. :biggrin

      But but but, there's a TON of Mac certifications out there if the apple website is to be trusted :blink

      (took a look once, and was baffled by the fact that it was an utter mess with bits and pieves missing, either the study material, the classes, the exams themselves or other... very bizarre).

      So, you guys are saying people in IT don't use Macs?

    15. Gingerdave
      Wait what am I then? (He typed on his snow leopard running mac) :blink
