Though already languishing in obscurity, Myspace recently harvested its top coverage as follows:

Interestingly, in a heated discussion on Reddit about the news, some have not a single clue about what Myspace is.

“Facebook prequel.” That’s the answer. Myspace once was, in the early 2000s, the most popular online community for people to keep a record of and share with others their music, videos, and pictures.

Myspace’s data privacy officer confirmed that due to a server migration, in which data is positioned from one server to another, files were corrupted and unable to be transferred over to our updated site — meaning, lost.

The feelings of users are mixed. Gone with the data were lovingly awkward good old days.

Out of earnest love for their “edgy high school music” and “cringey old photos”, some took Myspace’s data loss as a ringing alarm bell for the rest of their online files.

The almost foolproof solution is not to put all your eggs in one basket. Making a backup of your files on a regular basis is absolutely an effective precaution. And do backup your data to different places.

That’s when snapshot, a kind of backup technology (a read-only copy of the data set frozen at a point in time, in technical words), plays its role.

In contrast to a full backup of a large data set that take a long time to complete, snapshot is traveling fast and light.
