If you use a Western Digital "My Book Live" device for data storage, power it down and unplug it immediately: arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/0

@mhoye Do not let My Book Live know about your intention to turn it off, it may get spooked and delete all your data.

@mhoye this is why I don't trust anything anymore.

Is it difficult to keep my git backups in sync? Sure.

But it beats this kind of problem.

@mhoye Holy shit, imagine working for WD and waking up to this bug report >.<

@mhoye

User: That's a priceless backup!
WD, in Clouseau voice: … not any more.

@mhoye this is like a 21st century campfire horror story 😬
