The likelihood of a file locker site being taken down (imo) is less likely than your hard drive failing. Megaupload was a different case altogether though. If you hadn't followed all the information or sometimes 'misinformation' then you could probably go back and read about it.
But you should always have more than 1 backup and not rely entirely on one source. For instance I have my files on my computer synced with my own house file server which are then synced to a Git repository, Dropbox, and Mega. Now, unless by some miracle my computers exploded and the internet was brought down all at the same time, then I should be pretty fine. I also keep my most important stuff syned on an external drive that get's plugged in once a week.
Although my movies are only on my file server, if that goes I'll probably loose them for good, but that's as simple as re-ripping them. Thus why I only back up my music, pictures, and documents.
