    NZ Police look for MU Files in server

    Not by booting up the server, but by taking the server apart.

    Really!

    That's not how it works. You don't take a computer apart to look for physical files made of paper stored within. The files are stored digitally. On hard drives [for example].

    So the owner of one of the largest "data in the cloud"-services is in further legal trouble because he didn't have a mirror-stream of the security footage to that service (most of the better NAS-devices support such a service), but instead trusted a local storage. Now that's irony.

    It's also a bit strange that the IT-expert didn't just connect the disk with the data to his laptop and copied the video-files, you don't want the police to assemble a server.

    So today there is a court hearing in the US trying to decide what should become of the MU servers.

    Seems most parties want them to be destroyed or sold. But wouldn't that be destroying evidence? They haven't even had the trial yet!
