Carpathia: No Immediate Plans to Delete Megaupload Data
February 1st, 2012 By: Rich Miller
Carpathia Hosting says it has “no immediate plans” to delete data on servers operated by the Megaupload file sharing service, and will provide advance notice before any deletions take place.
“Carpathia Hosting has no immediate plans to reprovision some or all of the Megaupload servers,” said Brian Winter, Chief Marketing Officer at Carpathia. “This means that there is no imminent data loss for Megaupload customers. If this situation changes, Carpathia will post a notice at least 7 days in advance of reprovisioning any Megaupload servers at http://www.Carpathia.com and http://www.MegaRetrieval.com.”
Carpathia continues to recommend that Megaupload users seeking to retrieve their data contact Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) by visiting the MegaRetrieval.com to investigate their options for retrieving their legitimate, non-infringing files.
Megaupload’s domain names and data were seized Jan. 19 by the U.S. Justice Department, which alleges that the company enabled users to upload and share pirated TV shows and films. The data seizure created a problem for many users that stored legal content on Megaupload.
Didn’t they originally claim they had no access to the servers or data? Or was that the other company?
