MySpace File Loss Update

Update: It appears many of the songs I added from others who uploaded them to playlists are still available although they may or may not be attached to playlists.

If you saw my earlier MySpace post, Wayback Machine Recovers 490,000 of the 50 Million MySpace Music Files Lost Recently, there’s an update. I was on FileHippo, https://filehippo.com/, looking to re-install some of the anti-malware software I lost when I had to re-install my Operating System (OS).

I haven’t uploaded anything to MySpace in the last three (3) years. I logged in and it’s pretty bad. I lost about half of my photos and all of my saved playlists with the exception of one song saved back in 2014 that somehow missed the purge,. Most of my friend connections (over 4,700) are still there although most no longer have profile photos attached.
