Microsoft manages to recover most Sidekick customer data

Earlier this week T-Mobile notified customers that there was little chance that they would be able to recover the Sidekick customer data that was lost due to a server outage earlier this month, but today Microsoft said they've been able to recover most, if not all, of the data that was lost.
Microsoft said Thursday that it believes it has recovered most of the Sidekick data that it initially feared might have been permanently lost.

"We are pleased to report that we have recovered most customer data for those Sidekick customers whose data was affected by the recent outage," corporate vice president Roz Ho said in a letter to customers."We plan to begin restoring users' personal data as soon as possible, starting with personal contacts, after we have validated the data and our restoration plan. We will then continue to work around the clock to restore data to all affected users, including calendar, notes, tasks, photographs and high scores, as quickly as possible."
