Well at least I'm glad that I didn't buy a lifetime account!

As I mentioned in another thread, I planned to use them as one leg in my backup scheme. I was under the impression that my files were being store in Hong Kong. The reason that the US was able to get a court order was that Mega had servers in Ashburn, Virginia. That is where I live. No wonder the service seemed so fast... I had a fibre optic connection from my home to the servers. That's good for speed but I wanted my files stored on another continent. Something like a bad flood could destroy my home systems in Ashburn, my backups at the bank in Ashburn, and the local Ashburn servers. I was not getting the level of protection that I had envisioned and I'm actually glad this issue was exposed.

If other services currently have servers in the US. they will (I hope) now see the wisdom in shutting them down. I'm going to try again with another service, but I will only go for a one year account.
