Adobe Lightroom iOS update permanently deleted users' photos:

A recent update to the Adobe Lightroom app permanently deleted some iOS users' photos and presets, an Adobe rep confirmed on the Photoshop feedback forums. Adobe has since corrected the issue, which was first spotted by PetaPixel, but not before drawing the ire of many disappointed users.

[...] Needless to say, users who had just lost photos and presets were not happy. "Rikk, we understand the announcement, however this doesn't solve the problem," wrote Ewelina Wojtyczka. "People lost months/years of their work. Apologies will not bring it back."

Adobe hasn't further commented on the bug outside Flohr's post. [...] While Adobe shouldn't be let off the hook for this error, perhaps the importance of multiple backups is the hard lesson we can learn from this.

    See my last reply. And ultimately it would be the same situation as Firefox - everyone acknowledges that once the deal with Google is over, Firefox days are numbered. Because you can't make money selling free software. The same thing would happen if Adobes source were released. Who's going to maintain it and keep it in sync with the other versions that weren't affected? Who's going to replace all the proprietary 3rd party code that even a Court couldn't order released in the event adobe went broke?

    Even if adobe said "fuck it, here's our source, hope you choke on it" they can't release 3rd party code, libraries, etc. They can't even release the code interface specs because those are also owned by 3rd parties.

    It's the same as when you and all the other idiots demanded Microsoft release the source of Windows 7. Even if they did, you would not be able to run it because of 3rd party code and libraries they can't release. And it's not like "the community " has the resources to replace those - again, lack of money money money, always money.

    You are so completely off base with this Firefox rant. It does not relate in any fashion to what I am advocating. You're just poisoning the forum with that crap, trying to divert the discussion.

      barbara hudson is one of the biggest trolls on this site. For some reason she seems to have some bone to pick with open source, especially the GPL. I don't think she's so much shilling, but rather is just incredibly ignorant. One of her favorite tactics is to pick on some specific open source project, in this case Firefox, then use it that to try to paint broad strokes about open source in general. I would just ignore her.

        I can't discuss her condition without knowing if it's shtick or not. Her real name could be "Eliza" for all we know. I don't mind keeping it occupied for a while, it's a slow day
