While checking my gmail id today, I was shocked to see that google had deactivated my account without any prior notice. Now, I am not able to access my blogger accout, orkut account, adsense account and analytics accpunt. Can anyone help me here.

Please check the screenshot of the error which is showing <removed>

Thats shocking, I maintain my most important data in my gmail. I use the gmail as the repository for any data possible.

Can you tell me what is the daily activity of your gmail.( Not asking about your personal mails), but other than that,what are the kinds of mails that you generally get.

Now I realize Google is not safe to keep your important things there because they can ban your account any time without any prior notice. I maintain all my important docs there. Some might be recovered as I sometimes share them with my another account but most of the important things are lost. My one year effort and many things are gone.

Really its triable, its Google's Monopoly.

So, its question in my mind, can we trust Google services.

There has to be more to this story then what appears on the surface.

Has to account been left dormant for an extended period of time?
Was the OP using the account for improper uses?

I do not believe that G would block an account without some reason.

Best thing to do is contact support and find out what happened .

Yes Tropical Island I have contacted many times with them as well I have given my alternate mail id but they haven't send any mail to me. May be Google getting lots of mails this time because they have disable many account without any prior notice so they are not getting time to read my mails.

There is a Google Groups posting about this. They accidentally deleted a batch of accounts and are supposedly still working on it.

Not sure if I can post this URL here, but a Google rep contributed to it so it looks like it's official:
