100+ users sued Microsoft over tons of data corrupted by Win 10 upgrades

About two years ago Microsoft started pushing Windows 10 upgrades offering free-of-charge system upgrade to Windows 7, 8, 8.1 users. As a result, many people that had agreed to upgrade OS suffered from PC hardware damages and severe data loss.

More than 100 of angry computer owners lost precious files due to OS upgrade filed a lawsuit against Microsoft corporation in the hopes of compensating for the loss. The total of the claim amounts to $5M.

Stephanie Watson, the main complainant, claims she never wanted to upgrade to Windows 10. However, when it happened, she lost critical job-related files. To retrieve information back, Stephanie hired professional file recovery experts but they failed to recover data.

As a reminder, Blizzard company decided to drop support for Windows XP and Windows Vista earlier this year. However, careless system upgrade caused serious problems with priceless user data safety.
