Quote:Yahoo Photos was closed last year, users were told well in advance and given the choice to move their pics to Flickr, Kodak Gallery, Photobucket, Snapfish or Shutterfly. Yahoo made it clear that all remaining photo accounts would be deleted after October and that any photos still remaining would be erased with no chance of recovery, sorry...
The rule of thumb should be never count on any online services to keep your data. Only by keeping it locally on hard drives or usb sticks can you count on it being there. You can't count on CD's or DVD's either, I went through nine year old CD's the other day and 8 out of 10 no longer worked.
uh huh. I've got a bunch of CD's that have the reflective silver coating is peeling.
That was the only inexpensive "long term" way to store data 10 or so years ago.
It was a false sense of security.
