MySpace Lost Music Uploaded From 2003 to 2015

MySpace:

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. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest that you retain your back up copies. If you would like more information, please contact our Data Protection Officer, Dr. Jana Jentzsch at DPO@myspace.com.

Via Nick Heer:

Anyone who thinks that something like this couldn’t happen to the music they’ve created and uploaded to Soundcloud or YouTube is fooling themselves.

Update (2019-03-22): Gary Bernhardt:

Reminder that “the cloud” is neither a backup nor a suitable location for data that you care about. Your provider will delete all of your data when it’s no longer economical to host it, or when someone typos a shell command, whichever comes first!

I wish they would "lose" my account completely as I no longer have the password nor the email account connected to my MySpace account.

I had the same issue with my PSN account. Fortunately, it's only a matter of time until something goes wrong and the password is inevitably leaked, because all of these companies are incompetent, and then you'll be able to retrieve your lost password. That's basically how I regained access to my PSN account.
