This weekend, a banner on the MySpace site announced that audio files uploaded more than three years may no longer be available.
According to the site “As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago, may no longer be available on or from MySpace.”
It has been estimated that nearly 50 million songs from 2003 to 2015 have been lost. According to MySpace users on Reddit, all pre-2015 music stopped working about a year ago. Customers were first told MySpace would correct the issue and later told the files were corrupted and couldn’t be transferred to the new site.
There is very little other information been released by MySpace, we have read online that various news sites have contacted MySpace regarding this issue and are still awaiting a response.
