Hi,

My "My drive information" is showing Free space: 1.93 GB / 5 GB. Which is what I expect, as I have previously stored roughly 3GB of info there. But when browsing this area via the Bullguard account page, there are no files ! My backup seems to be missing, but still taking up space.

There are 3 devices:
UNITY
Home
Recycle Bin

Even when selecting "show previous versions" I do not see any files "This folder is empty" is reported.

I'm actually not too bothered that my files appear missing, as I only use this area as a scratch pad. But of course this problem is really bad. What I wish to do is at least complete empty the backup area so that I can use it again. I'm not able to delete anything (because there is nothing to delete).

How can I fix my backup area ?

Hi J Moore,

Please access your Online Drive from the "My Account" section and select "Recycle Bin" from the "Select device" drop-down menu.
Check the "Show previous versions" box and delete all files from there.


Cheers!

Hi,

I've tried this already. It doesn't mater what device I pick, and also I'm selecting show previous versions. All devices/folders are empty. I've attached a screen shot to show you. My files have "gone", but they are there somewhere, because 3GB is used up.

Please either "reset" my backup area, so that I have the full 5GB, or at least allow me to "see" my files so I can delete them myself. Thanks.

Hello,


Can you provide me with your BullGuard username (in a private message) so I can check your account and see what exactly is happening?

Thanks.

Hi,

I still have 3.1GB of files I can't access or delete, or even "see". I sent you a PM. Anyone have an update ? I'd like to be able to use the Backup space again, and at least need to be able to delete what I can't access at the moment.

It seems the PM functionality isn't working. Every time I write a message and submit, the web page just jumps to the Forum title page !

Hi J Moore,

It indeed appears that the PM system does not work in some conditions.
I have escalated the issue to the server team.

Thank you!

Hi,

Do you have an update for me ? I still only have 1.93 GB free of 5 GB, and my backed up files are missing.

I've sent my user ID to support in an email, which is now over a week ago ...
