The data stored on Megaupload’s servers has been a key point of dissent between Megaupload’s defense team and the prosecutors pushing against Megaupload. Prosecutors allege that the files should be destroyed, as they are illegal. Megaupload claims that prosecutors have taken all that they need from the servers, and that they want them destroyed without allowing Megaupload to look at the files for its defense. A judge has ruled on this, and the 25 million gigabytes are secure, while the opposing parties work out a deal for the data.
