leasewebLeaseWeb, a Netherlands web hosting provider responded to Kim Dotcom’s claims made Wednesday morning in Twitter that LeaseWeb had wiped all megaupload server thus destorying all data and crucial evidence for Megaupload’s defense without warning. The lost data has about millions of personal Megaupload files, petabytes of pictures,personal and business property, and backups.
