In case you missed the news Gmail had a failure this weekend for a small number of users who found their contacts and emails gone. As in poof, vanished. Goodbye. For users who backup via IMAP or another method this was an inconvenience, but if you leave your only copy of data in the cloud, it’s a reminder that you should backup your Gmail account.
