What happens to Cruback3 now?

It has been returned to the University of East Anglia, having been retained as an exhibit through the course of the investigation. It was necessary to retain the actual server for this time. It contained a massive amount of data, something in the region of five terabytes.

===============================================================
Let’s hope relevant FOIs can still proceed unless CRU is able to get away with stalling forever and/or wiping the server.

re: 5 terabytes, does that suggest there was a lot more docs and/or emails than what may be in the still encrypted zip file from FOIA?? I don’t know the details such as the size of the zip file still out there… just wondering if the 5 terabytes on that server suggests anything, about how much selection and culling FOIA must have done (and why)???

“Of course, the climate sceptic community would, in the main, give the appearance of welcoming the published data because it supports their view. Therefore, we were realistic about the prospect of them being helpful to our investigation.”

He’s saying that the emails support the skeptic community. Note he didn’t say “deniers”.

Thread #4:
A terabyte is a thousand billion. That second FOIA file (FOIA2011) was 177.5 mb in it's compressed form. So even if it was 100:1, you can see the total size for all the included files would be around 17gb.
