During those days before the existence of Facebook, MySpace was ruling the social network worldwide. However, recently MySpace lost almost 50 million of music tracks which was uploaded between 2003 to 2015. The MySpace data privacy officer confirms that during the server migration the music files is corrupted and they could not transfer the data to the current site. Now, after few weeks MySpace confirms the songs are back on its server.
With the help of the anonymous academic group almost 490,000 tracks is recovered. This group has shared the tracks to the Internet Archive, which is a non-profit digital library which gives users free access to books, movies, and musics. During the peak year of MySpace, this academic group has downloaded 1.3TB of musics as part of their research. They were using the musics to study the music networks.
In conclusion, out of millions of tracks at least 500,000 songs is recovered and archived successfully. At this moment, MySpace is not sure whether they can recover the remaining songs yet.
