MySpace Has Lost Almost All Pre-2016 User Content

Yes. You've read that right. An estimated 50 million MySpace audio tracks have been lost along with photos and videos.

While the deletion of embarrassing teen photos and dodgy demo tracks may come as a relief to some former users, it's a massive loss of the internet's living history and, unlike many mass content deletions, there was no warning to allow users and archivists to back anything up.

Not that anyone was using MySpace anyways. Maybe it's a sign from the universe that it's time to kiss your past goodbye. Read the whole story here.

Local files need to be backed up online. Online files need to be backed up locally. Belt and suspenders. At least two copies of everything. Three in at least two places is preferred.

Backups... Local backups, offline backups, online backups, off-site backups.
Always backup your files. Never rely on anyone else to do it for you. Even Dropbox has lost customer files.

The sad thing in this case is people who lost music from musicians who've died in the time since they had uploaded the files.
