    My backup files have disappeared showing the recent dated May 2015!
    When I open my company file the last entry was dated 8th May 2015!
    I hope the engineers can find all my recent backups!!

    I have just logged in and can't open any files... actually, I can't even FIND any files. Although the virtual drives say they are there, and there is data in there, I can't see any files listed AT ALL. I have my Q and B drives, but that's as far as it goes.... ARRRGGHHH!

    Hi Rav

    We have the same problem. We spent the last 3 days updating our file in preparation for BAS, only to find the file missing this morning.

    We have logged a request with your online team, who made it sound as if it was our fault, which I think is totally unprofessional.  He is asking us for the exact name of the file, but with all due respect, it is not something we pay that much attention to.

    Please advise when this issue will be resolved.

    Hi guys,
    I'm really sorry for the frustration this is causing.

    This is currently being investigated at the highest priority by both our IT and technical support team.

    We do ask however that you give our support team a call if you haven't already so that we can gather your individual examples for further investigation.

    Thank you

    That's really disappointing to hear Georges and I'm very sorry that you had that experience.

    At the moment the team are trying to obtain as many examples, and as much specific information as possible on all affected cases so we can identify a pattern and implement a resolution. I'm very sorry to hear this wasn't handled in the best way on your call.

    Yes I'll definitely keep this thread update with further information when it comes to hand. Stay tuned.

    Thank you
    Rav

    I also have BAS's due for lodgment.  I could not access my file last night.  This morning there was a file with the latest entries in May 2015.  I reported this to your Technical Support team first thing this morning.  This is a huge problem for our business.  Please advise when it will be rectified.

    Hi Everyone,

    We have now identified the cause of some users not seeing the most recent version of some of their files so we can now work on implementing a solution as soon as practical.

    We'd like to re-iterate that this problem has impacted a small number of users. Please check your data file again and if you still have old data in your file, please give us a call. Our technician will be able to help you with your lost data.

    Once again we are very sorry for the inconvenience this issue has caused you and we thank you for your patience. 


    regards,
    John

    I got in touch with tech support around 12:30 today and was supposed to receive a call back to let me know when the issue was resolved. I just tried logging back in to see if there had been a resolution and I just hadn't been contacted, but no - still no files :(

    My files haven't come back yet. I noticed someone else is still having a problem too. Have you finished working on it? I will be calling support in the morning but wondered if there is more work being done tonight. I was also advised when I spoke to supporr that they would call when problem was solved. Haven't heard from them yet

    Any word. I have rung the help line - no help. Files are all gone - only ones available are from May 2015. BAS is due in 3 days and I fly out for my holiday tomorrow. Really not freaking happy.

    Hi guys,
    Our IT team have been working hard to get this issue resolved. As mentioned above, the cause of the issue has been identified and initial remedial work conducted which has restored files for some users.

    Further work is continuing to address missing files with the small number of remaining users.

    If you're affected by this issue and have not been in touch with our Technical Support team yet, we strongly encourage you to get in touch as soon as possible so we can assist with your lost data.

    Thank you

    Hi is there any more news this morning?
  • RavRav Administrator Posts: 10,760 Administrator

    Hi Tania & everyone

    The cause of the issue is due to a very limited number of user accounts pointing to a certain file server which developed issues.

    Our team have been able to move the majority of affected users who did not make changes to their company files yesterday to a new server which has restored access to their files.

    As mentioned above, if you still do not have access to your data, please get in touch with our Support team this morning so we can work with you to restore any missing data.

    If you have any questions, please let us know

    Thanks

    Rav

    Mine is working - I was told by two different customer service people that I would get a phone call when it was working so to stop calling.  No phone call so have just wasted 3 hours of my day when it was working all along.

    That's really disappointing to hear, I'm very sorry about that Tania.

    I'll have a word with the teams around this to ensure the correct expectations are being communicated and pass on this feedback.
