FYI:

Yahoo has made the decision to no longer allow users to upload content to the Yahoo Groups site. Beginning October 21, you won't be able to upload any more content to the site, and as of December 14 all previously posted content on the site will be permanently removed. You'll have until that date to save anything you've uploaded."

I'm looking for alternatives on how to save the data from the OS/2 - eComStation related groups.


I had connected to the "Yahoo Privacy Dashboard - https://yahoo.mydashboard.oath.com " to download whatever I can. It says it may take up to 30 days to generate the backup for me to download.

According to my Yahoo Group account I'm registered to:
mysql-os2, ISPLI, SETI-WARP, os2ddprog, eComStation, os2user, clubos2, OS2-OCR

If there are other OS/2 related yahoo groups please let me know.

Once I got the backup I will check if it is useful or not.

Some of the groups I'm registered -
eComStation
ecsapps
injoy_news
lcmd
MULTISOUND
odinusers
sane-os2
Dev_Corner
dfsee-support
smartsynchronize
os2ddprog

Most of them do not have a lot of traffic in the last years and I probably will not miss very much when they are gone. I think os2ddprog is the one with the most valuable content for me. But as I got all of the messages as email I've them locally back to the year 2000 ;-) Just checked some of them - still very interesting stuff there.

Hi Andi B.

Do you have a way to backup and share all those e-mail from your e-mail client? It does not matter if it is a big file, we can store it on archive.org, and later, with more time, maybe it can be organized.

I'll add
OS2-Linux
Gimp-OS2
Warpbrowsers
OS2-Nice
OS2Hardware
OS2-mt

Most are dead with the occasional message on Warpbrowsers.

Hi

FYI: The backup produced by "Yahoo Privacy Dashboard - https://yahoo.mydashboard.oath.com " is just the setting data. So it does not has content.

I found a message that says "To download content and other groups data, please use the Groups Download Manager or go to https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/getmydata"

I'm trying that one now, it also tells me that it will notify me once the backup is ready. Let's see how it works.

Regards
