Update by user Mar 30, 2015

So the management of the new company finally came clean and admitted my pictures are gone forever! For those wishing to be included in an attempt to hold this company liable, please friend me on Facebook or LinkedIn, then send me your full contact information to communicate directly with legal council.

Rodney Grover - Ypsilanti, MI. Unless these people completely destroyed the servers holding our photos, there should have been no reason for this disaster.

Original review posted by user Dec 14, 2014

They have lost nearly 12 years of family photos. I am contacting a lawyer on Monday.

Anyone with me? They never respond, even after posts on their Facebook page. When they do respond, its with a generic 'we're trying our best' comment on social media. This should have been an easy server transition with the new ownership, but it seems they've failed and should be held liable for the value of 11 years of lost photos and memories.

I cannot believe they had no clue this was going to happen with hundreds of millions of photos. Furthermore, there was no fare warning to remove the photos or back them up on another storage source.

Reason of review: Poor customer service.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

WinkFlash Pros: Old site and experience.

WinkFlash Cons: Smoke and mirrors.

Location: Ypsilanti, Michigan

They lost over 10,000 photos of mine and years of memories. If they took over or bought from previous owner why did they not care to let us account holders know and keep the past memories safe?

Any money cannot replace lost memories.

Marriage, birth of babies etc...I am so devastated. It's like a bad dream.

Has anything happened with this class action lawsuit? I just came across this information on the internet and I have also been on numerous calls, emails and various other communications with Wink flash to retrieve my lost photos.

I have just learned that all of my photos have been lost. I am so sick to my stomach right now.

I can't believe this. I am looking to join you with a class action lawsuit.

Although nothing can replace those pictures. CV81268@***.com
