HTC Closes The Door's At Dashwire

If anyone had any data saved on Dashwire, a cloud service that has been running for over four years bought by HTC, you can just kiss it goodbye.
HTC bought Dashwire for $18.5 million back in August 2011. HTC was planning on integrating the cloud service to their own Beta version but decided to start from scratch.
Warning were sent out to the Dashwire customers in January and in February of this year and then they posted this statement "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. We apologize for any inconvenience, and greatly appreciate your support over the years that you have used our service."
Customers who tried to retrieve their data complained that either they could not or that it took to long to retrieve.
The Dashwire service was outdated and never work properly, so I agree with the decision to scrap the whole thing. Then again I was not one of the customers who lost information. I guess it depends on how you look at it.
