Microsoft services such as SkyDrive, Hotmail and Outlook have been inaccessible for hours due to the ongoing migration process. Hotmail users might not be able to see all the emails and the issue has not been resolved. This has caused a massive backlash by frustrated users on Twitter #hotmail.
On Mar 12 at 3:41PM PDT, SkyDrive experienced issues with adding, editing and removing files. Users also received errors while publishing content with Windows Photo Gallery in an online album. The issue was resolved on the same day at 6:40 PM.
Calendar users were also disrupted on the same day due to Hotmail performing maintenance on Calendar until 6PM PDT. Users may experience delay in the syncing of mail, contacts and calendar content to mail apps and phones. Viewing and editing calendars might be slow.
This is the second time in recent months that Hotmail and Outlook users have been affected by service disruptions. iPhone, iPad and Android phone users were disconnected from their accounts for several days in January. It is unknown if the disruptions are related to Microsoft’s plan to move the “hundreds of millions” users still using Hotmail to Outlook.com by this summer.
