Apple is about to shut down all remaining MobileMe accounts that have not been migrated to iCloud, MacRumours reports.

MobileMe’s online services went offline on 30 June, but Apple told users that they had a “limited time” left to migrate their accounts over to iCloud and download all of the photos and iDisk files they had stored in MobileMe.

Now, though, Apple is starting to take the old MobileMe servers offline, meaning that any users yet to migrate to iCloud or download their files are at risk of losing that data completely. According to MacRumors, a company representative has said that Apple began the closure yesterday, but “some users’ data could continue to be available after that time as Apple works through the process of purging all of the old MobileMe data.”

iCloud already has 150 million registered users, but many of those reported problems with the service on Wednesday.
