Submission + - Data massacre or stored items lost due to back rent? (

kermidge writes: Dutch firm LeaseWeb has wiped and re-provisioned 630 servers which had been rented by Megaupload. While the U.S. had confiscated 60 servers owned by Megaupload, the rented servers had been left alone. LeaseWeb claims they sent notice of the impending wipe; Kim Dotcom says they didn't. In the event, European former users of Megaupload lost all their content. According to Dotcom, other hosting firms have continued to hold on to Megaupload data, which he says constitutes evidence in his prosecution by the U.S.
