EFF is trying to help MegaUpload users retrieve legitimate data
If you are one of the MegaUpload users that had files uploaded to the site before the federal indictment and shut down and have lost complete access to those files, there may be something you can do about it to get those files back.
This is of course for users with non-infringing content. If you happened to have copyright infringing content, that you will never get back. For those that had legitimate data uploaded to MegaUpload, the EFF is working with the server host, Carpathia Hosting to try to help you retreive that data before it gets completely deleted forever.
EFF and Carpathia have launched Mega Retrieval, which is asking that you contact them so they can counsel you on how to get back your data. MegaUpload had millions of users, and tens of millions of files loaded to the servers. With that being said, EFF may not be able to help everyone, but if you are desperate to get back your data, maybe photos or documents, you can go to the Mega Retrieval site and try to find out how to get it back.
From Mega Retrieval:
When the United States Government shut down access to Megaupload, a multitude of innocent users who stored legitimate, non-infringing files on the cloud-storage service were left with no means to access their data.
If you believe you are one of these users, are based in the United States, and are looking for legal help to retrieve your data, please email the best contact information for you to the EFF at:
Please do not send us the details of the materials you have uploaded. Also, please note that EFF is a small donor-supported nonprofit and does not charge for its legal services. It may not be able to represent everyone who inquires.
