This one is quite unusual.
A client was bulk deleting products from Magento (latest build) and somehow nearly all products were deleted.
Here is the client's description:
Following a successful routine deletion of a batch of products a second attempt following the same procedure appears to have resulted in every product being deleted including those not selected for deletion. Steps followed. From the admin toolbar, “manage products” page was selected, then scrolled to page 34 out of 34. Then clicked select all, then de-selected each product i wanted to keep. Then selected delete from actions dropbox and clicked submit. The result was successful deletion of the products that had been selected for deletion. The process was repeated for page 33 out of the remaining 33 pages. The command failed to process as indicated by the loading symbol in the browser bar continuing to rotate for about 4minutes before the command was terminated by clicking the loading symbol to halt the process. During this time it is possible that SSL certificates were being installed on the website by another user. When the page was later refreshed lthe majority of products from the site had been deleted from pages 1-33. Without any further commands to delete remaing products, as time passed more of the remaining products were deleted from the catalogue until all products were eventually deleted.
Does anyone have any idea what may have happened here?
Many Thanks Chris
