    This article has been imported from chorus.fm for discussion. All of the forum rules still apply.

    Archive.org:


    A wide-ranging collection of 490,000 mp3 files from MySpace.com, accomplished using unknown means by an anonymous academic study conducted between 2008 and 2010. […] Nearly every file in this item is no longer hosted at MySpace, due to a suspicious and low-key deletion/loss of data in 2018.

    A bunch of music that was thought to be lost, has been found.

    This is pretty huge, a friend of mine was just looking for some old songs he left on Myspace that had been deleted.

    However, maybe it's because it's being pounded right now, but that search function is currently almost unusable, at least to find anything I wanted to find.

    Do we have confirmation that the files were really lost? The original article suggests that they're just temporarily offline and can be brought online at a later date.

    Be excellent to each other!

    Was really hoping to find some of my old band's songs, but nothing...

    Might be Spider-Man...

    Other big name sites are going to "lose" a ton of data accidentally, it's coming.
