HTC shuts down Dashwire mobile backup service, takes user data with it
...In early January, users of the "original" (Windows Mobile-based) Dashwire service were warned that it would be shutting down. Users of mIQ, a mobile cloud backup service powered by Dashwire and available through Best Buy were issued a similar warning.
Now, just about a month later, all user data is gone, and the support forum at Dashwire has been wiped clean.
"As of Feb 15th, 2012, the Dashwire.com solution was deactivated and is no longer being actively supported by Dashwire. We hope that you were made aware of this through the warning emails that we sent on Feb 1st, and apologize if this was not the case. Unfortunately, all of the data has been wiped from our system, and we no longer have any access whatsoever to any of our former users’ data," the final support message from Dashwire said on Wednesday. "We apologize for any inconvenience, and greatly appreciate your support over the years that you have used our service."....
