How much junk is in cyber space?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

I often wonder how much stuff is just floating around.

Last week I got an E-mail that was from my brother.  He sent it in Feb. of '09.   So, where was it and why did it come through at that time.

I had an E-Mail that I needed very badly that just disappeared this week.  I had the agent replace it and he just re-sent the same one.  It was date stamped when he sent it, but i never saw it.

So...How much junk is lost in cyber space.  I bet it would boggle the mind!

Somewhere beyond this moon, cyber space is being littered upon.

Oh how weird, that hasn't happened to me yet but I'm sure it happens more often than we know. Thanks for the post.

Good evening William. I just this past week got a reply to an email I sent over a year ago about a log home I had listed. They wanted to set up a second showing. Yikes. Luckily it sold this spring but wonder where that email was for that long...

I would venture to guess that there is just as much in cyberspace as there is in real space.  I hear there is so much space crap floating around that you can hardly fly up there without bumping into something.  Maybe that's why you didn't get our email?

I wonder if there is a place somewhere that has millions of bits of lost data and emails. They have to be going somewhere!

Being a real novice at the REAL tech stuff this all baffles me to no end.

I don't do enough on the computer to have noticed this.  Sounds really strange.
