iCloud deleted my iWork Files
Consider this a warning. iCloud currently has a bug that can delete all of your iWork files (Keynote, Pages, and Numbers) in your iPad and iPhone. This happened to me earlier today after I synced my iPad 2 to my MacBook Pro. I opened my iPad 2 up again earlier this afternoon to retrive a presentation I worked on the previous night and to my shock it wasn’t there anymore. All 70+ presentations I’ve made on Keynote on my iPad 2 were all gone! I immediately checked my iPhone 4 and it was the same. My last resort was obviously the iCloud web version and it still didn’t have my files.
It’s not just me
There are a lot of people already starting to flock towards the Apple Support Forums complaining about the same problem. Here are a few links for everybody’s perusal:
I have to do a presentation for 200 people tomorrow morning. I worked on the script all afternoon on the iPad and saved it to iCloud. Now it’s gone. Unbelievable.
Why oh why did I trust a .0 release?
I take it from this thread that there are no solutions, and I’d better get to work rewriting the script. That’s what I’ll do. It’s 9:30 p.m. in Sydney and my audience will be ready to go at 8:30 tomorrow morning. Pfft.
i too have lost all my documents – 4 yrs worth of psychotherapy training notes. extremely angry. rang apple support – they couldnt understand it. due to ring me back but never did.
i have tried again with test docunments but it keeps happening.
praying that they are there but not visable.
if anyone gets solutions share them PLEASE.
I had the same problem, the whole point of the cloud is to not worry about losing anything! Apple messed up here!
I also had all documents in Pages, Keynote & Numbers lost. The documents merged from my iPad to my iPhone 4 and back but one day I opened up an iWork app and they were all gone on all devices. This is a major #fail! I see no way to restore old documents. This is why I should not depend on the cloud and keep everything local.
I’m really hoping that Apple does something about this. I’m hoping that my back-up at home will still contain my files. I’d hate to think that the iCloud killed all the presentation files I’ve made in the last year just like that. :/
