Between 5:20 UTC and 12:36 UTC we had misconfigured the location for Gitpod’s workspace backups.
Backups are taken when a workspace is stopped and they are restored when you reopen a workspace.
You are affected only if you have stopped and thereby backed up a workspace before 5:20 UTC today AND you have reopen this workspace during the incident.
Impact 1: The old backup could not be found, as such you got a new git clone without your changes.
Impact 2: Changes you made after you reopened the workspace are still backed up, but in the wrong location. If this affects you please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will make sure you can recover your uncommitted changes between 5:20 UTC and 12:36 UTC.
We are very sorry for the trouble this has caused to our users.
