Default Data Recovery - illegal files?


I got an offer from Seagate for data recovery (as a gesture of goodwill) because they sent me the same broken hard drive (warranty) back. Now, on this HDD there may be ripped /downloaded movies and series.. My question now is: will Seagate look into the disk / files and maybe contact, I dont know... the FBI or other organisations because of illegal files? Has anybody experience / knowledge about that?

I think somewhere in the GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS they had the FBI mentioned...

Yeah. Life long sentence in prison. Trust me, I only avoided that by going undercover and cooperating with the police.

But to tell the truth - I seriously wouldn't do that. You certainly won't be sued, but they will probably just delete your files. But hey, maybe just try it?

Greetings from the Bahamas and I hope the contract killers won't find me here.
