BT Digital Vault which is trumpeted as the safe place to leave your digital memories in TV adverts is currently unavailable and looks set not to return to service until Thursday morning.
"We are sorry that the service is at present unavailable due to essential maintenance work which has unfortunately taken longer than anticipated. Normal service will be resumed Thursday morning."Statement at www.digitalvault.bt.com
We believe the service may have been offline since some time on Monday according to one of our forum users. No further details appear to be available from the BT Press Office, so fingers crossed the service will be up and running again on Thursday morning.
The backup service normally lets people automatically upload content from their computer to the online storage facility, so once it does become available there is a chance of a rush of connections to upload data.
Update 15th November 2007: The service appears to be back up and running as of the early hours of the 15th.
