Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom says that millions of personal Megaupload files have been destroyed by the file-hosting service Leaseweb, despite repeated requests from his lawyers that Leaseweb protect the servers while Dotcom is prosecuted by U.S. authorities.

The dual citizen of Germany and Finland said the data included ”petabytes of pictures, backups, personal & business property.”

Before it was shut down in January 2012, the file-sharing site Megaupload was one of the world’s most popular websites — millions of users stored data, either for free or by paying for premium service. The site carried 4 percent of internet traffic.

Dotcom, 39, is currently fighting extradition to the U.S. relating to charges including engaging in a racketeering conspiracy, conspiring to commit copyright infringement, conspiring to commit money laundering, and two counts of criminal copyright infringement.
