Big Trouble with Owncloud

by on Jun.12, 2013, under Uncategorized

I installed OwnCloud earlier as a substitute for DropBox, but that was a big mistake.  I was recently working and saw one of OwnCloud’s little popups that several files had just been removed. Only problem was, I hadn’t removed any files, so it shouldn’t have either.  When I checked, sure enough, a folder with concert pics in it was empty.  I checked the OwnCloud server and they were gone from there as well.  I checked one of the other synced computers, and they were gone there too.  Poof.  Fortunately I have Carbonite installed on those systems and was able to get them back, but I’m wondering now what else may have been erased.  That little experiment with OwnCloud is done. I don’t feel like I can trust it.
