As we all know, Megaupload was shutdown by FBI some weeks back and the latest news is, the data might be deleted as well. Probably to most people, Megaupload is the heaven of piracy because you can find lots of movies, games, series and many more.
Deleting all those stuff is not really an issue but what about people who use the Megaupload service to backup their personal data? All the things might just gone and will not be able to retrieve even now since the site is already shutdown.
So is this the end?
I am not too sure whether is this coming to an end to all innocent Megaupload users. If you are in the dark where you have the problems of your data is going to be removed, you can just visit this site called megaretrieval.com.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), supported by Carpathia Hosting, today announced its plans to assess the scope of the issue facing Megaupload users who are at risk of losing their data. Carpathia has created this website, www.MegaRetrieval.com to assist users in contacting EFF. EFF will review the factual situations shared by users and, if possible, try to resolve their issues.
It is a site created by Carpathia Hosting to help out the victims of Megaupload but the success rate of retrieving the data still remained ‘finger-crossed’. A lesson to everyone here is even when you are about to drop everything to the cloud, always keep a backup copy on your local machine.
