The fix doesn't help much for already affected systems, as they're even unable to boot. Only workaround is to manually delete the files in safe mode for every system one by one, which is even more difficult if it's bitlocker protected.

Absolutely crazy that they managed to screw up this bad.

Only a trace amount in the air. Water is the best source but energy intensive to extract.

This seems to be the conversation logs being used for training Bard, without the bits pulled from Gmail etc. (if we're to believe the bard workspace TOS). I believe OpenAI does it too, for improving chatgpt, unless you've an enterprise subscription.
