Myspace apparently lost 12 years’ worth of music, and almost no one noticedUser uploads corrupted in server migration, and Myspace seemingly has no backups.

Do people still use MySpace?

Let's hope the users kept back ups then.

I take my audio backups to what most would regard probably as extremes. As well as using Google's free 50k free upload (worryingly nearly full) I have full backups on 3 Windows PC's, two external hard drives & a full copy stored on another external hard drive at a family's members home & also on their laptop.
Yes I know it's overkill but I once had a hard drive fail that lost over 4k cd's of audio files.
When I get new stuff I just put them on a usb flash drive & update all the backups.

EDIT
I forgot, I also have an ipod classic but that isn't up to date as I really hate iTunes.

I’ve still got all my CDs and tapes, and some vinyl but nothing to play it on. The few mp3s I have are on 3 PCs, 4 USB sticks, and double backed up in 2 sets of CD and DVD ROM discs.
