They won't restore megaupload to let users retrieve their date, even if it's temporary, it would "help" piracy more.
EDIT: Didnt say it was my opinion. I mean I bet they wont restore it and that is their reason.
Honestly the second Carpathia had confirmation of this they should've blown the data away. Its really not their problem and if the government and MAFIAA won't fork over the cash now then they probably never will.
I have zero knowledge on how hosting companies work, or what the hardware is like, but can't all that data technically be moved to machines, then turned off? I mean... Hard drives don't lose data when they lose power.
Although I bet it isn't this easy, or else they'd have done it already.
There are possibly bigger storage containers, but purchasing all that storage just for a file transfer, seems.. Implausible.
I wonder how they transfered all that data to the temporary storage?
What the fuck even is a petabyte?
It's still not a yottabyte though
But they're all ILLEGAL FILES
