That is a bummer, but it looks like whether you intended to or not, you had multiple copies of your data. This is a key to avoiding disaster, but of course it becomes a balancing act between constant back-ups or accepting the risk of longer intervals between backing up data and accepting the increased risk of data loss. Hopefully there will be some help coming for those people that had data stored on Backify from Livedrive,the company that provided the cloud storage backend, but I wouldn't hold my breath. From the press I've seen, Livedrive and Backify seem to have build up a lot of animosity, and Livedrive has no motivation to assist Backify customers.
