The Australian arm of backup and storage reseller, iData Resolutions, has been wound up with about $500,000 in debts.

The company ceased trading on January 23 following a meeting of creditors at liquidator, Woodgate & Co.
Australian liquidator, Richard Rowley, told ARN said he was now in the process of realising the assets of the company.
"We will investigate the affairs of the company and will in due course pay the remaining creditors," he said.
"We have advised them [customers and partners] of our appointment. Most of the company's activities are run out of New Zealand. That company has also ceased trading as I understand."
EMC is understood to be the owed $280,000, topping the list of creditors.
The company had more than $478,000 in debts when it ceased trading on January 23.

According to company's now defunct website, iData Resolutions started in 1992 as Backup Strategies Limited and was the original Legato distributor in New Zealand.
