DATA LOSS!!! - RapidDrive = Garbage Program.

2011-11-14, 19:24 PM

I am power user and this is what happened:

 

1. RapidDrive automatically installed.

2. Plugged in my External HDD to get something, no intention of enabling RD ***** UNCHECKED BOX *****, screen went away.

3. Unplugged Drive.

4. Restart computer later on, where are my icons on my desktop? My Documents = emtpy?

5. Plugged in HDD and found out it had "backed up" 5 GBS worth of SENSATIVE DATA to my HDD without my consent.

6. Tried on disable and move back, searched google... found i had to uninstall it. ok easy enough.

7. Uninstall and move back data complete. So far so good. Said it can't delete documents folder. (Evernote).

8. Noticed folder was still on my external HDD, probably due to Evernote's Database.

9. Ok to make sure, i compared both old and new folders (double checked location bar on top, not library link) same data,

10. Ok........... so i guess i can delete my externall HDD data since everything is ok.

11. Delete.

12. Found out my folders in my old location were EMPTY.?

13. Scurry to run Recuva and get some files back. 

14. Old location of HDD STILL NOT REVERED IN LIBRARIES.

 

What the hell is wrong with Lenovo? Are you guys serious? 

 

Why isn't there a move back option without uninstallation.

What isn't there a CONFIRM TO MOVE and PICK YOUR FOLDERS option instead of automatically moving the most personal folders over.

 

This is insane, i lost some invoices and god knows what. This is definetly isn't my fault. This programs moves back folders with data and then suddenly leaves them blank and doesn't correct library links.

 

 

This garbage program should be put in beta.

That's definitely not supposed to happen.  I'm very sorry about the trouble that the RapidDrive Advanced software caused.

Can you please tell me exactly what model your external HDD is?  Is it USB, eSATA, something else?  Thanks.
